Can anyone tell me if OSSV v3 uses the archive bit when backing up from windows. It looks as though versions 1 and 2 did, but has it changed in 3 with the changelog minifilter driver? I'm wondering if I can run a normall tape backup schedule aswell as ossv during the change over from tape. Thanks for any help

According to the manual:
"A block-level incremental (BLI) backup recognizes that a file has changed based on a timestamp and checksum algorithm".
So i guess archive bit is not used in traditional BLI backup method in any version including v3.
About changelog minifilter driver it only says:
"Open Systems SnapVault scans the backup folder to identify the changed files".
IMHO this can be understood the similar way - that still timestamp is used.
Hope it helps.
