Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

I make clear why I choose the dot as separator once more. The name of the archive and the file must be identical if we remove the 2 last extensions. I will check this is properly implemented I think one control may miss. This is a simple criteria, whatever character has been included in the base-nam...

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Chris If I understand well you are against this change right.
I also feel this anti-malware we do not even know the name is the problem.
For the moment I do not move!

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Could we all agree here that using parenthesis will be acceptable, and that would stop this polemic topic? To be clear I would add the date between parenthesis at the end of the base name, before the last extension. If agreed I will implement this and push a PR. It will not be done today as anyway I...

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Again if you do so the archives will not be properly identified between 2 project with names beginning the same as
project.FCStd
Project-1.FCStd

The parenthesis seems to be a solution, let me know

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

What if we include the information of the archive between parenthesis as the browsers do with (n) when downloading, to avoid deleting a previous download?
The parenthesis would then be forbidden in the format the user can define.

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

As I told you the problem is to have a way to clearly identify what archive relates to what project, knowing that the format of the date can be changed at any moment by the user. how to make the difference of the archives of the 2 following projects: project.FCStd project-1.FCStd project-20200301.FC...

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Hello Double extension causes problems when the second extension is program extension ie (.exe, .bat, .cmd, .msi, .dll and some others). Therefore, I do not agree that this multiple extension represents a risk. I just searched on my PC (with grepwin that is a more reliable tool that windows search) ...

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Yes I agree and that is why I modify the configuration of any PC to show all extensions.
But our files are not a malware right.
No anti-virus will discard such a file. right?
As long as FCBak file extension is unknown windows display both extensions. Right?

So where is the problem?

Re: dot in filename issue with new backup policy

Are we really certain the 2 dots in the name cause problem. I never had such problems and I have been using many protection softwarein my life. I did not find on the web messages that double extension in files lead to misbehavior of anti-virus. I am not certain it is a problem. But this is used by s...
