Great work, thanks. I'm testing it now and am having trouble getting
I copied all the files from the boxi zip into C:\Program Files\Box
I created a bbackupd subdir there.
I copied my certs/keys/conf file into C:\Program Files\Box Backup\ .

Path = C:\Documents and Settings
ExcludeDirsRegex = .*
ExcludeFilesRegex = .*
AlwaysIncludeFile = boxitest.txt
Other test settings:UpdateStoreInterval = 3
MinimumFileAge = 4
MaxUploadWait = 24
FileTrackingSizeThreshold = 1024
DiffingUploadSizeThreshold = 1024
MaximumDiffingTime = 8
Let me know if there's anything I can do to get through this block, and
after that, what parts you'd like me to exercise.
Thanks again, Chris,
