I siwtched my laptop to file/folder a while back. I assumed it would keep on keepin on. I just peeked at the backup files and they haven’t updated since 9/14.
Then I just switched my desktop to files (after already backing up 100GB worth in category mode over the past year). I see that the “start backup” button is showing. hmmm. I click on that and it seems to be restarting about 100GB worth of backups.
So, when you switch from category to file/folder:
1) Do you need to click “start backup” again?
2) Does the drive compare the files selected to what was already copied over in the past while in category view? Or does it just do a fresh copy of everything?
- will the drive then delete anything that WAS copied over in catgory view, but is now NOT a selected file?
It seems to have copied 50GB in the past 30 minutes over G wireless, so I’m thinking it’s just re-comparing, not full re-copying. It would be nice if the software prompted you to “reactivate the backup” when you switch methods. This is 126.96.36.199.
