Master Projects not backing up with daily schedule backup. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a customer that has Projects scheduled to back up daily, through CA.  The issue is Master Projects are not backing up, but sub projects. Tested by making a change in a Master Project and checked next day.  It did not back up the Master Project I made change, but sub projects did.  Has anyone else ever ran across this?

  • Hi,

    Haven't tested it, but it makes sense since master projects should not contain any data, but rather should be a container for sub-projects. In this model, since they don't contain any proper data, there should be no need to back them up. Even inter-projects links are stored as predecessors/successors in the sub-projects.

    What is your use case? Why would you need to back up master projects?

    Hope this helps,

  • I haven't had a chance to examine the deployment yet.  It was a question from a client that I wanted to check on before diving in.
