--b --mdudd --usemd --vb

Postby rybshik1 » Sun May 24, 2020 1:25 am

is {--b --mdudd --usemd} compatible with --vb for NTFS drives ?

More generally, is it a good idea to always use {--mdudd --usemd} for NTFS drives backup?

[Options]
MDUseDirData=1

[BACKUP_DEFAULTS]
UseMetaData=1

[RESTORE_DEFAULTS]
UseMetaData=1

If you're using --vb, then it's a good idea to use --mdudd also to avoid any validate byte-for-byte errors from directory area changes.

No. /usemd is a special use item that some people may want to use.
Normal users who don't understand what it is and it's impact shouldn't
use it.
