Situation

The backup was not clearing the A bit or resetting the last access date of files that were being backed up with Arcserve for Windows. This would result in almost full backups being done when only an incremental or differential backup was requested. Much more time was required to do the backup than otherwise would have been. Much more tape space was used as well. The backups could not be done in the window of time allotted. There was an issue discovered with the fstape2.nlm from Computer Associates. The fix was implemented in that module.
