Feature Request: CHKDSK befor Volume-Backup

Post by wsususer » Jan 14, 2015 5:17 pm 1 person likes this post

To backup no corrupted volume should, before a volume backup starts, a check of the to be backuped partition with CHKDSK be conducted to detect errors.
If an error occurs, should the backup not start. Instead, a warning should be generated

Reason: When you secure a damaged file system, the backup is for that matter worthless, since the error is back with restore.

Interesting request. Need to consult with the dev team, as I am not sure if we are doing something similar during backup process. Thanks for bringing this up!
