testing backup

Post by jlittle » Tue Mar 04, 2014 3:12 am

Is the test that runs automatically at the end of a backup the same as what runs if you click Manage backup>Validate (test) backup ?
Thanks
John

Manage backup>Validate (test) backup

The Manage backup>Validate (test) backup runs the same test phase but also attempts to repair the backup in case of error, e.g. a backup zip file becomes corrupt or is missing.

The test run during a backup only tests the new backup files, not all of them.
