Anytime, glad to help getting the release better.

The later. The client used previously was one of your Win32 0.9x releases. When switching to the
latest build, I had a lot of SetReplacementFileAttributes in the EventLog (with ExtendedLogging).

Yes, they stick after the first backup with the latest source tree.

So far, so good, I run backups regularly and get no errors with the compare -aq command. However,
I have too much data to run compare -a (without the quick switch) more often than once a month or

It takes too long to re-download everything for a full compare cycle, if we could add one more
step to make the -aq end-to-end, it would be great. It would have to some kind of a checksum that
verifies that the data on the bbstored side's hard drive actually matches blocks used for the -aq
