Created a new backup job, goal to archive files older than 999 days(maximum amount I could select), job ran and backed up files in my test directory but the job archived all files then deleted all files. Below is the procedure I used to create the job.
Select New Backup Job.
Selected the data to be archived.
Click the Include/Exclude button and check the Files not accessed in X days and entered the number of days, 999.
Checked the Include radio button.
In the Backup method for files field, selected Full-Archive the files (delete files after successful copy)
Complete the backup job options
Question what file attribute does BE look at to determine what files to archive then delete?
Archiving files / creating placeholders:
Recalling the placeholder:
On file data access operation the mini-filter recalls files on read, write, set info, memory map operations

Further testing have found the following. When I set "Files not accessed in XX" under Include\Exclude, the setting is not being applied. If I select the Apply button both the Apply and OK button gray out, only button left is Cancel. When I go back into the job and select Include/Exclude agian I cannot tell it was ever selected and based on the results of my test runs it would appear this is indeed true.
