keeping timestamps of the files. My download directory changed and I lost my maps (mistyped command on my part), so I thought I could
regenerate them and back things up for storage. When I regenerate maps, I lose the last download time of the project. To compound the issue, when using the built-in backup feature, I lose the timestamps of the files that were backed up from disk, so I can''t use the timestamps of the .wd3 files as a guide to know when I last updated.
.boe files seem to be zip files, and the zip file format allows timestamps to be kept. Would it be possible to keep this data during backup and to keep the last download time when regenerating the map? Also, the number of files/size could be set as if the download was new; since it does have to re-parse all the files.
Please let me know how it works.
the timestamps in the zip are still the time of backup, rather than the time on disk before the backup. For example, if I download a project yesterday and back up today, all of the timestamps in the .boe files will be today (time of backup), and not what they were on the disk.
Make a new backup file and restore it.
If you will notice any other mistakes, let me know. Thank you!
If I mirror a directory such as Test/Example and examine the zip under unix, everything goes where it should; except for the Descr.WD3 files which go into a lowercase mirror version, named descr.wd3. For example:
(I thought they would be in Test/Descr.WD3 and Test/Example/Descr.WD3).
Restoring from OE seems to put everything as it should be, so that might not be a very serious bug, but I''m trying to avoid the possibility of any strange problems happening in the future when I restore (or if I have to do something with the backups on unix).
When using the map tab in the interface, the directory names are all in lowercase. Is that by design?
Thanks for the great support and the bugfixes, it is appreciated.
