Post Advanced Attribute "file is ready for archiving"
The NTFS Advanced Attribute "file is ready for archiving" does not seem to get set when a file is modified on a ntfs-3g mounted volume. I am using the command "ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /home/ns/sdb1mount/".

Of course, I cannot see this attribute when the volume is mounted in Linux. But when it is mounted in Windows, I would have hoped to be able to that modifications to a file (whilst mounted in Linux) have caused it to be set. I use this attribue to determine which files should be backed-up (when the volume is mounted under windows) ... so it is important to me.

I would be very grateful for your feedback.

Thank you Jean-Pierre.

I have installed ntfs-3g-2009.4.4AC.14 and this successfully sets the ntfs archive attribute bit when a new file is created or when an existing file is modified. Great!

However, I have found one problem. If a file which does not have its archive attribute bit set is moved to another directory, its archive bit remains clear. In Windows, this would set the archive bit. Indeed, I would say that it should set the bit otherwise the file will be missed by backup programs.

Many thanks for your help.

Ok. This will be fixed in next release.

Thank you for testing.
