FEBE: make user defined backups elements permanent?

Been using febe for a while now but only recently discovered to my horror that it doesn’t automatically backup sessionstore.js!

Well I then went to make it a permanent backup element by including it through user defined backups. However as far as I can tell it only runs for the first backup and is not included in future backups.

is there a way to make user defined backups selections permanent ?

The sessionstore.js file is very profile specific and as such it is not included in a selective backup. It is, of course, included in a full profile backup.

As long as FEBE Options > What to backup > Backup type > Additional items > User-defined backups is checked and the user-defined backup item itself has the "Include in backup" box checked, it should be included in each selective backup. (Make sure to "Post entries and exit" after clicking "Submit" in the user-defined backup window.)

hi Chuck,

thanks for getting back to me!

I tried creating a new profile and restoring my 2 day old full profile backup to that but nothing came of it (in fact no changes registered in my new profile at all after the restoration(wierd).

Is there any way i can extract the sessionstore.js from my recent full profile back up? and why didnt my full profile restore have any impact?

tnx!

I don't know why the restore did not appear to affect your session. I'd need more information and files to compare to debug it properly.

In any event, you can extract sessionstore.js from your full profile backup file (profileFx4{profileName}.fbu) using any unzip utility (renaming the backup file to .zip if necessary).
