There’s also the “allow save” attribute. If no, that file will never get saved. We do this with things like image catalogs etc. that can be recovered other ways.

SAVDLO backs up old IBMi folder objects if I recall correctly.

Here's a useful link. Talks about BRMS, but relevant.

subject: Question on backing up the IFS

I thought when doing a SAV, that all IFS files/folders would be saved. I have not done this for many years and so yesterday I was trying to do a IFS backup, I found that SAV did not allow me to backup the folders.

Perhaps I need to play with the command more.

I want to backup some folders only and not system folders.

Is there a simple way to backup the IFS user folders?

TIA, Darryl Freinkel.
