Copying files with no extension? : LUSENET : Anders Petersson's Freeware Forum : One Thread

NHB 2.5 b 6

NHB does not copy files which contain no extension.

That's not good. I've added it to my list of things to do, but there will probably be no time to fix it until summer break.

I downloaded NHB 2.5 B 6 two days ago and noticed the same problem. It's my first experience with NHB, so I don't know if the problem was in the previous versions also. It's a great program by the way.

One thing that intriges me is the fact that one file without extension was copied, the others were not.

Suggestions: - Add some kind of sanity check. E.g. compare total size on source and destination. Keeps in mind include/excluded files. - Add the option to exclude file patterns. A natural request is: "Backup everything but this or that." E.g. exclude filter: *.class; *.obj - Option to list implicitly/explicitly excluded files in report. - Option to do a verify read on the backed up files.

Kind regards,
