I recently posted about an error in my backups that I found out was due to consolidation. I started reading some posts on here about how it's supposed to work. I then did an experiment. I created a backup location on my hard drive and the only limit I put was for size at 50 MB. I then created a scheduled task to backup a folder that has some PDFs in it. I set the task to do incremental backups to my backup location and to create a new full backup after 2 incremental backups. Each time I would manually run the task, I would create a copy of a PDF file in that PDF folder. So my first backup had a copy of this file in it. Then for the next run, I copied that file again, so I got Copy (2) of XXXXX. I then ran the backup again. I kept doing this until the backup location was full. By this time I was at Copy (7). During this backup, I saw it doing consolidation with the long filenames and then it finished. I was of course left with less backups. I then browsed each of the backups that were left, and to my surprise, none of the backups had Copy (7). With the 3 left that I could access, I had the 3rd backup, the 5th, and the 6th. This didn't make sense, so I tried it again multiple times making a copy of a different file so it would be a different amount of backups before it would go above the quota. Every time I did it, none of the backups left would have the last copy I was supposed to have, meaning the latest backup wasn't there. If this is the case, the backup locations could cause me to lose my latest backup, which kills the usefulness of the backup location quotas. Has anybody ever tested this consolidation process with success? I even tried reinstalling the program and it does the same thing. I am using TI Home 11 build 8,053. Update: I tried doing the same thing at home with the same results. When setting a space limitation on the backup location, the backup that leads to the consolidation is not there after it completes.
