View Full Version : some file info stored in the index files

subj would be nice!

we are using amanda to back up some files to tapes for long term storage and i find it really inconvenient there is NO info on the files stored except file names.

at least file size and creation time would really help, especially for restore routines when planning space ahead is a must.

i am forced to do that "by hand" (with a script) right now, storing info in separate log file per volume. i think this is not a very complex functionality to add, just wondering why was it never implemented... just 2 additional text fields in the index preceding file name.
