suggestion: about the backup logfile
« on: May 26, 2009, 11:25:46 pm »

Buffalo LinkStation Mini

Model# LS-WS500GL/R1

Firmware: 1.04

Configured for RAID1


This is a very minor suggestion - I noticed that the Disk Backup's optional log file is principally just a list of all files in the destination share as they appear upon completion of the backup.  For backups with type=Overwrite, it would be more interesting if the logfile contained only the list of files/folders which were new or changed.


Also I noticed that when you choose the optional log file, you get one log file per source data share, and it is placed in the share upon completion of the backup.  I think it would make more sense to have a single log file for one backup operation, regardless of the number of shares, and it should be placed in the destination folder not the source folder.


Just a suggestion.
