Amen! I can think of no conceivable reason a user would not expect or want ALL the files in a given folder to be backed up by default. Am I missing something?
I agree, if you are doing a backup, it is most likely that you are doing it to protect valued files... you would want it to save all files, not just a handful.
The data backup is still poorly implemented. I agree with all the post in this thread but I have two major complaints.
1. During the Total Protection Beta we had the ability to set the Backup schedule to "Manual" After installing my released version, this option isn't available. The schedule options are unrealistic.
2. Regardless of when the backup is scheduled, Data Backup will kick off running "Validating" and "Scanning" at seeming random times burning up CPU time and bogging down my machine. If I schedule it to run at 1am on Monday that means I DON'T want it running some routine at 2pm on Saturday afternoon while I'm trying to get some work done.
I certainly do have issues with not being able to simply backup my C: drive to D:\BU folder and expect to get a full backup.
I finally had to give up and uninstall the backup app. Doing it manually is so much less of a hassle.
Do you mean you want it to be able to make an image of a system partition, or just backup all files (as far as possible) from a certain partion?
