archive bit set on

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This is my first post as I'm currently only evaluating KAV for Windows Workstations v5.


Just completed a complete scan. Very impressed but I've found that the archive bit for every file on the PC has been set ON. i.e. each file is now marked ready for archiving. Therefore my daily incremental backup to tape turned out to be 35GB rather than the usual 2GB. :(


I'm fairly certain that KAV did this. Can anyone confirm that this is the case and if so is there a setting to prevent it? :wacko:


It's running under Windows XP Pro SP1 (NTFS file system)


Thanks and best regards

Hi Rod!


1st i would say if possible update your System to SP2 and 2nd i like to know which backup software do you use and what version it is.


Also i hope you're running the latest version of Kaspersky File-Server 5.0.72
