How to backup files whose attributes haven't changed

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

How to backup files whose attributes haven't changed

Post by jlikonen »

I have been using Syncbackfree to backup my openHAB files to Synology NAS. Only yesterday I realised that some files which contain historical data (e.g. temperatures in our house) haven't been copied to the NAS because the attributes of these files do not change, i.e. the date/time are the original ones when the file was created. These files are created by rrd4j persistence service in openHAB. It also seems that the file size does not change. I don't know how this is possible but Syncbackfree ignores these files. I made a test profile in Syncbackfree and verified that these files are ignored.

So, I'm wondering how to make nightly backups which would copy all the files in the openHAB folder.
