After an upgrade to 7.4, existing backups with System State selected will fail.
Existing backups will fail with the message:
“This job was defined by too old a version old a version of the plugin or contains legacy selections that are no longer supported. Backup jobs should be redefined with the current plugin. Restore jobs require an older version of the plugin to be installed.”
System Settings backups with older versions of plugin are incomplete/inconsistent and include files that should not be backed up when processing a proper System State job. This will generally happen if the job was originally created using Netvault 7.1.1 or earlier.
Modify job(s) for Windows clients, deselect System Settings, select System state, resubmit job.
The only restore issue that may come from this is if you need to restore the System state from a session that was created by the older version of Netvault. Once you upgrade Netvault, you should do a complete backup of all clients including their System Settings.
