This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a differential job. yesterday I found out that it has been about 30 gb growth on the tape incomper with a day ago, I was sure that there was nothing has been change on the folder that differential job create a backup of, so after some reserach findout the only thing that has been change was that I did add one user to securtiy group of that folder.

my question is,

can we configure the BE to not backup the files just becuse the security of a folder has been change? or this will heppens regardles of which attribute of a folder  has been changed?

This will happen regardless of which attribute is changed.

In the differential backup it looks for the archive bit or modified time. If the change made has flipped the archive bit or changed the modified time, then that file will be backed up.
