    Default Whence Backup6_14_2009.xml in c:\Windows\Internet Logs ?

    Hi

    I'm sorry if this message should not be put here, but I could not figure out where.

    While checking one thing and another on both my desktop and laptop, I spotted a file called Backup6_14_2009.xml in c:\Windows\Internet Logs - and I know for sure I have not used the Backup Security Setting in ZA Overview | Preferences. Besides, that one lets you choose the folder yourself.
    Oddly enough, it happened on both my desktop and laptop, both on 14/06/2009, the one on my desktop at 19:52 and the one on my laptop at 19:50. Their size is almost the same, one 2085 and the other 2098.

    Is there anyone around here that knows a bit more about this enigma?

    Thanks in advance for your precious time.

    Ananda

    Hi!yes, I see this too with the latest ZA 8.0.400.020 . Probably a new way ZA tries to safe the user in case of corrupted settings or just to have more configuration information in case of troubleshooting. The only one able to answer to your question is ZA staff. Contact them directly. Link in my signature.Cheers,Fax

    Hi, dear Fax

    Thank you so much for your reply. It does feel a bit better to see I am not the only one in a sometimes dark ZA environment. Would to God they would try to be a bit more transparent to their 'valued' users.!

    Sent the same question to ZA Staff. If their answer is relevant, I will tell you.

    Kind regards,

    Ananda

    I have seen this in an earlier release prior to this latest.
    Open it with the notepad and have a good look at the ZA's own self made backup .xml file if you wish.

    Dear Oldsod

    I already had - but even so, thanks for your reply.
    It is not that I cannot accept them doing this, but as users, I thought they might have informed us.
    If they did, then kindly tell me where, because I don't really know. Else I would not have reported this in this thread, would I?

    Kind regards,

    Ananda

    I find it most excellent that you already examined the new file.

    I admit I am myself at a loss concerning the lack of details given in the release history of the ZA releases.
    Not only are the specificnew files omitted, but often other relavent and pertinent details are over looked or omitted.
    (I usually first disassemble the new ZA installers and first examine any new files or file changes before installing the newer versions - this way I get to see the new files before installing the newer ZAs).

    You may consider adding your opinion about this particular issue to some of the threads seen populated throught out this ZA users forum which are posted by the checkpoint staff; that are presently and especialy asking for ZA users opinions, gripes and complaints and recommendations.

    Your personal input is valued to them!
    So please speak up and be heard by checkpoint!
    Best regards.
