write if not present

Post by Memnon » Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:45 am

Why does function "write if not present" overwrite existing files, thus not allow the program to save the data?

EVB is working well, it does not overwrite the file if it exists.

In your case, I think, there is some another issue. You are using the option Delete Extracted when Exit. So extracted file, which is them modified by program, being deleted by packer on exit. Next execution, the file does not exist, and it is being extracted again.

Check out this case.

data after the program starts.
data has changed, a new date on the files.

I open the program again, it shows that nothing has survived.
Do not close the program look at the data files - they are old again.

"Write if not exist" function doesn't work for me too. Files are always overwritten. I think there is a bug in the program. "Write if not exist" option confused with "Always Write to Disk" option. Could you please re-check?

Just rechecked, program works as expected, existing files are not being overwritten with this option.

Make sure you are using the latest version of EVB.
