Error description

  • If a directory that is not in the include list is renamed, and
    that directory contains files that were previously backed up,
    the backups of those files remain under the original directory
    name.  Consider a configuration where only the *.doc extension
    is in the include list.  If a backup happens for MyFile.doc in
    a directory named DirectoryA, FastBack for Workstations/Tivoli
    CDP for Files backs up the file into its own copy of
    DirectoryA.  If DirectoryA is renamed to DirectoryB, FastBack
    will do nothing because MyFile.doc has not changed.  If the
    clients hard drive died after this and a full restore on a new
    hard drive is performed, MyFile.doc would not restore to
    DirectoryB as expected, but instead restore to DirectoryA.
    

Local fix

  • Run an initial backup after moving the directory to force all
    the included files in the new location to be backed up.
    

Problem summary

  •  Backups for file extensions not occuring if the
     directory they reside in is moved or renamed after the initial
    backup
    

Problem conclusion

  •  When directories are renamed or moved, FastB
    ack for Workstations/ Tivoli CDP for Files will backup all the i
    ncluded files in the new directory in the 6.3.1.1 or higher vers
    ion.  NOTE: the new files/directory can take approximately 2 min
    utes to show up on the remote server.
    

Temporary fix

  •  Run an initial backup after moving or renaming a
    direcotory to force all the included files in the new location t
    o be backed up.
