Re: Rebuild backup contents

As you found out the option is Manage Backup / Validate (Test) Backup / then click Repair Contents File . AISBackup does place a copy of the latest .bdb file in the backup destination and also creates a file called <Backup name>.previous.aibrecover, the .aibrecover file is actually a zip file and to...

Re: backup size keeps changing without running

The only think that I can think that would be causing this is Windows doing some housekeeping, for example updating the search index. I was going to suggest a test by only selecting folders that are unlikely to change, for example c:\Program Files.

Re: Using external hard drives

Yes, each drive contains a full backup for each session made to it, you probably have 100’s of backup sessions you could restore from. If you have a spare disk drive you could confirm this by restoring one or more of these sessions to it. If the backup contains Windows then the restored partition wi...

Recover disk space

Hi John

You could try the Manage Backup / Validate (Test) Backup option, that will remove any data that is no longer in the files database.

disk space following remove

Did you click the 'delete' buttons on the bottom right of the maintenance form? This performs the actual removal of the data from the backup.

Generation based backups

If you delete a file from the PC it is not automatically deleted from the backup, if you remove the file from the list of files to backup then it is not automatically deleted from the backup either. If you want to remove the file from the backup you should use the Manage Backup / Backup Maintenance ...

Update option

Hi Hugh

Is there anything in your anti-virus log (if any) that may indicate a problem?

Update option

Hi Hugh

I have used the update option several times and each time it has been successful. I hope this problem is a one off, and your solution was what I would recommend.

SSD disk cache

I should imagine that no software on the PC has to change how files are accessed when this type of disk cache software is installed, this should be the same for AISBackup. Access to files is logical and the underlying hardware implementation should be ‘invisible’, as it is with the different typ...

All Sessions

All sessions shows all files that have ever been backed up. Your second restore from the last backup session deleted the icons that did not exist on the PC when the latest backup was made (AISBackup should have asked to confirm the deletions). FYI: Desktop item positions are held in the registry and...

Public vs. user desktop

Files in the public desktop folder are shared between all user accounts, files in \user\ account name are only for that user's account. Some applications are installed for all users, even user accounts yet to be created (if any), hence the public folder installation. Sometimes applications ask the q...

Onedrive

Hi Hugh

Does this apply?
Microsoft also removed ReFS support for OneDrive in July 2017.

"The OneDrive can't be created in the location you selected...you need to format it with NTFS

OneDrive backup problem

Nothing has changed in the way that AISBackup backs up OneDrive folders, I still have a backup to OneDrive that was set-up when it was called SkyDrive and that is running right now, and will take a few hours. I will look into this for you. I am not surprised when a Windows update breaks existing pro...
