Barry Shame, but thanks for your help! Just fyi, the images in question are all astro photographs - they have to be indexed by filename and date/time -thumbnails wouldn't work. That said, I'd love to see something like AISB with specific image handling features such as thumbnails and enhanced indexi...

Indexing DVD Contents

A friend of mine (it's not me, honest!) has a huge collection of pictures which he's been copying to DVDs over the years. He's never indexed them and now he's got the problem of trying to find specific images. Is there any way AISB can read the contents of existing DVDs and add them to its db, along...

I have also only just found out that Vista supports UDF writng to CD and DVD (R and RW too!) so AISBackup has been updated to support this too.
It's nice to have options, but is there any advantage to using UDF?

Re: Backing up missing files

Missing files are logged as GONE, but only show up in a full log, perhaps we should move these to the normal log, especially as we try to discourage people using the full log except when fault finding. Barry Tough call! Obviously I knew what was going on, and I can imagine it being a normal situati...

No Warnings

During a backup I realised that I was backing up a number of very large and completely unwanted files. I paused the backup, deleted the files (including some that had already been backed up) and carried on. At the end of the backup there was nothing to show that anything unusual had happened. Is thi...

The Hendrix version

Barry, there's something odd here! The link on the download page is to aisbi296.exe but the downloaded file is aisbi269.exe. The installed app says it's 2.2.0.271! I've tried 3 browsers on 2 systems, so I doubt it's a local cache problem.

Sorry, my question was very misleading :oops: What I want to do is apply a search string to specific file types e.g. find all .xls files with "action" in the filename. Normaly I'd use *action*.xls, but without wildcard support I don't know if this can be done. I suppose ? is heading towards regexes,...

Selecting files for restore

I know that wildcards aren't supported for restore operations, but is there any way to simulate them? Specificaly, I want to restrict searches to certain file types.

Of course real wildcard support would be ideal :wink:

2 Bugs

It looks like I've found 2 bugs in v 2.3.0.295 1/ Most, but not all, of my html files appear as duplicate entries when I use "Restore from Backup" or "Find a file". The modified dates on most of the duplicates are exactly 1 hour appart, the others are identical. I can't see anything special about th...

Does (or should) AISB run under XP Pro x64?

Is there a better way of doing this?

My current backup scheme is simply to backup changed files to a CD-R every day - when the CD's full I use a new one. This is fine, except that the overhead of using multi session CDs means that I'm only using a small percentage of the space for the actual backups. I'm not losing sleep over this, but...
