    Default Clear archive attribute after copy

    Hi, I have seen this has been requested a lot some years ago and it should be a trivial function to add that could help a lot with backup.

    I currently use the mirror option in a script to do a daily backup but would like to have the option in it to clear the archive attribute in the source after the file has been copied.

    I was wondering if this could then speed the comparison if you set the option to exclude files without the archive attribute. For me it would make sense to first do the exclusion and afterwards do the comparison, or basically only compare files that do have the archive attribute in the source. I am currently getting memory problems with lots of files over WAN.

    Thank you for the suggestion. An option to clear the archive attribute on copy is on our wish list for a future version of Beyond Compare.
