BACKUP and recorded backup dates?

» close window

The Question is:

We created new directories on our disk drives. Now the
 BACKUP/MODIFIED/SINCE=BACKUP command does not work from these directories. All
 files are backed up on these specific newly created directories. All files on
 established directories (ones that were cre
ated 2 years ago) will only back up the files that have been modified. (the
 correct way) did a DIR/FULL on all directories and files and nothing seems
 different. Could there be a bug????

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume you have performed a BACKUP/RECORD
  pass, and you have a directory that is being modified.  As such,
  please start with a review of the OpenVMS FAQ section entitled:
    Why isn't BACKUP/SINCE=BACKUP working?
  as well as the other related sections of the FAQ.
