I am havinga problem with FM Server 8 running on OS X Tiger server. While the FM shows that the backup scripts are running as configured, the backup files display their Creation Dates in the finder window under the heading "Date Modified." This makes it look like the backup script is not running. When you select and individual database and do a command-i, the correct modifcation date appears.

Is anyone else having this problem or have an explanation as to what is happening here?

Thanks!

Although not the same problem I have experienced the mod date not updating correctly under various versions of OS X, but as soon as you select the file from the finder it gets updated. Possibly an OS caching thing?

I copied a back-up script from FM help

Set Field [

If [

Save a copy as ["Backup Copy.fp7"; copy]

Set Field [

End if

and it works if the database is running on your Mac/PC.

But the problem is that our database is running on a server so many users connect via FM Network and the above script does not work!

Is there a way to that a database running on a server can automatically back up or something. Any advice is useful.

Thank you

Thank you steven.

Sorry we are using File Maker Pro 8.

We have a Mac Server and thats where my database is running/loaded. Everybody on the network simple go File>Open Remote to access it using username and password.

Looking forward to any advice.

Thank you again Steven

Check out FM Server -- it's not cheap, but I find the increase in performance and reliability to give significant cost savings in the medium to long term. Use the right tool for the job, etc. etc.
