backup history not working
« on: September 15, 2021, 04:57:58 am »
In the attached zip file are 4 files.
DA-000006-orig.txt   -  the starting file
DA-000006-Copy1.txt    - the modified file

DA-000006.txt.vsdelta2,  DA-000006.txt    - the two files from the backup folder.

The starting file has 8000 odd lines with "enumerate command" used to make the lines 0,1,2...8000
The modified file has 3 changed lines and 3 inserted lines.  Backup history diff finds only the changed lines, it does not find the inserted lines.

I've set up putting the files in the backup folder.  The current local version of the file should be *-Copy1.txt, right?

Are you comparing the local version DA-000006-Copy1.txt to version 3 in the Backup History archive?

hopefully I'm not confused.
here's some new files, the names should be self explanatory this time.
version zero has just the enumerate 0 -8000 or so

version 1 has 3 changed lines 800, 1200, 1600  approx

version 2 has 3 inserted lines  - aaa   bbb   ccc

when I compare the current file with version zero I see only 3 diffs - the 3 changed lines - should be six diffs.

when I compare current file with version 1 I  see only 3 diffs - the 3 changed lines - this is wrong.

when I compare current file with version 2 I  see 3 diffs - the 3 inserted lines - which is correct.

DA-000011-actual-file.txt is the local file, correct?

Are the most up to date version (DA-000011.txt) and archive file (DA-000011.txt.vsdelta2) the same as before?
