    Conditional Encoding: What is "Source Has Archive"?

    Hi everyone,

    when using the DSP Effect 'Conditional Encoding', I do not fully understand its settings: How exactly do 'Source Has Archive Set' and 'Source Has Archive Unset' work? What do I need to do with my files in order to trigger these conditions? Is it maybe a specific tag or a file attribute that the setting is looking for? I couldn't find anything about it in the documentation or here in the forums.

    All the best
    square

    Archive is a setting of file properties, like Read only, it automatically sets if you edit a file, the idea is a backup program can look for files with that flag set, then unset it after backup.

    Thank you for the fast reply! The archive bit seems to be a file property in Microsoft Windows. How would this setting behave in the Mac version of dBpoweramp? The option is there, but I suspect there's no suitable equivalent for the archive bit in macOS? Or is there some extended attribute I can set to mimic this?

    Archive relates to the Windows version yes.
