I asked this question a while ago but it never got answered, and I haven't been able to find documentation for this feature. It appears that FM7 (not server) can save a copy of a file while other P2P FM7 clients are connected. FM6 could not do this. Is this a feature of the new architecture, or is it a bug that only I have noticed?

Thanks

Version: v7.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

I'm using FMDev 7 as a host on a G4 MacOS X 10.2.8. Yes it can save a copy of a file, but only when it acting as the host. However the client cannot cannot save a copy of the hosted file.

This is good.

FM7 incorporates a pause during the save a copy operation to ensure the integrity of the copy.

However, the pause operation is less restrictive in FM7, as it allows hosted users to continue with queries and browsing, it only stops users that are attempting to change the DB.
