hy, i tried Server Version 1.2.4
I have disabled that the client user can change his settings - but after every reebot it is possible to change some settings for some minutes. I think this is not really good.
One scenario where i can think taht this can make troble is the following.
System adminstrator has a server and many domain users.
Everybody has only one Computer - so the admin adjusts the settings so that every user profile will be backed up.
PC1: For user1 c:\users\user1 will be backed up
PC2: For user2 c:\users\user2 will be backed up
Every user has access to the Backup files via Browser - Ok
Now user 2 want’s to have access to some admin files on the desktop from the adminstrator (c:\users\superadmin
All the user has to do is to restart the computer - change the settings to backup the complete c:\users folder - and then he has just to wait for next backup to restore some files where he hasn’t access before !
I recomend that the ACL should also be backed up - on windows robocopy is able to do this easily.
I don’t know how urbackup works internaly - but with robocopy - long pathnames and special characters are no problem.
Even when the Windows Explorer can’t read the folder or the file - robocopy is able to copy that content.
Please think of it - maybe we loose the file access via browser -because the rights management is complicated
Normaly in a Domain environment - many users have access to the same computer - so the admins must restrict the wrongful restore possibilities.
Kind regards werner
