    Can someone verify this very minor situation that I'm experiencing on Thibor16b on wrtsl54gs?

    1. Go to: http://192.168.1.1/storage/Data_Backup.asp
    2. Assign the following:
    a) Job Name: Test
    b) Backup Type: Select either Full, Incremental, or synchronize (doesn't matter)
    c) Direction: "From another device to WRTSL54GS"
    d) This WRTSL54GS Share: Select a share that you previously created (don't use "All_Partitions" because this is where I believe a problem is)
    e) Sub Folder: Can be blank or a valid sub folder.
    f) Remote Device Name: Enter a valid machine name of a machine on your LAN.
    g) Shared Folder: Valid folder share on the Remote Device Name you selected.
    h) Days: Everyday
    i) Time: Select any time.
    j) Click on Save Settings

    At this point, my "WRTSL54GS Share Name" reverts back to "All_Partitions" and will not work if you've disabled "All_Partitions".

    This is probably a function that nobody is using, but I just wanted to point it out to see if anyone else is tried this. I suppose this may be in the previous versions also, but have not confirmed this.

    tbh, i don't think the backup system is working. it was included and supported in the codebase as a prebuilt binary so there's not a lot i can do about it, except rip it out.

    Have you been able to get it to work with all_Partitions enabled. I haven't eitherway, but would love to know if you have, and how.

    Thanks!

    it calls upon a function named dumpsamba that i haven't been able to locate within the sources, unless it's a part of the binary. so no, i haven't been able to get it working at all.

    Thanks Thibor! Actually this feature is somewhat questionable in the first place (something we can definitely live without). The synchronize option was the feature that I was thinking about toying with but can definitely do with out.

    BTW: many thanks, the router with your firmware is working great!
