.BAK File Help Needed

Jun 12, 2012 11:08 AM

Tags: #help #dreamweaver #contribute #backup #.bak

To paraphrase Tupac Shakur, "I don't have no fear of death. My only fear is coming .bak reincarnated."  Apparently that's the problem I am having with files being overwritten on the server. My supervisor asked me to dig up everything I can on .bak files, which turns out to be not much. Under what circumstances does Dreamweaver generate .bak files, what kind of information does each include, and what is the sequence each is displayed in.

    DW does not generate .bak files.

    Can you elaborate on what problem you're facing, which version of DW and which operating system?

     

    Do you have Contribute-compatibility enabled in DW? Site > Manage Sites > Edit > Advanced Settings > Contribute.

     

    The Rollback feature in Contribute (and DW I believe) generates .bak files to rollback to earlier versions of files.

    Date modified should tell you what you need to know. 3/9/2012, 4:25pm is more recent than 10/25/2011.
