Hello,
Is it possible to change the extensions of an existing backup from .zip to .aib ?

I tried like this:
    - Select the job
    - Select Manage Backup - Rename Backup file Extension to aib

This does not seem to work. It renamed all the files, but when running the backup the next time, I got this error:

Quote:
Could not connect backup destination or the previous backup is incomplete


Renaming the files back to *.zip using the command prompt solved the error.

Did I something wrong, or is the Rename Backup file Extension simply not working ?

I'm using version 459.[/i][/list]

The rename should work but certain backup types may not have been tested enough.

Please e-mail the .buz file for this backup and I will try and replicate the problem.

This problem has been repaired and will be available from the next release of AISBackup. The problem only affected backup to network drives except backup to network connected external drives.
