Hi , I am just evaluating Backup Magic at the moment and it seems to work perfectly for what I need. We basically have a site that is connected to HO on a 2mb MPLS link. We have a full backup of the sites data so all I need is a copy of the modified data each night which I can get using Backup Magic by choosing the use archive attribute. I have tested this and it seems to work really well. My question is that if I rename a folder or create a new blank folder and run a backup it doesnt appear to update these changes on the destination side and the archive bit doesnt appear to be set if you check the properties of the folder. If I re-name a folder and manually set the attribute it makes a copy of that folder rather than updating the folder on the source end. Is it possible to re-name folders and for the changes to apply at the source end ?

BM is unable to rename folder (because it does not know if your renamed folder is actually renamed, or it is different new folder). If new folder in source is not empty, it will be copied as new folder. BM also does not currently copy empty folders.
