Why do you think that this is a problem? Of course, your backup process may read a partial transaction record -- it will be dropped automatically when the storage file is opened. Of course, your backup process may not have backed up the state at the end of the backup -- but it will have backed up the state at the start of the backup. Thus, all you can have as a problem: the effective backup may not exceed the state at it was when the backup started. I think, this should be good enough. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
