  4. Fixed an issue where exporting activity logs and task history might fail.
  5. Adjusted the retention policy to ensure that at least one successful backup version is kept.
  6. Fixed an issue where backup templates might not be applied if users changed the capitalization of the destination shared folder name.

  2. Fixed an issue where the first backup version might be corrupted after users rebooted their CentOS devices.
Fixed Issues (File Servers)

  1. Fixed a performance issue of Snapshot Replication caused by file server backup tasks.
  2. Fixed an Overview information display issue when there were ongoing file server backup tasks.
  3. Fixed an issue where folders whose names start with "proc" cannot be selected as file server backup destinations.

Release Notes for Active Backup for Business | Synology Inc.
Increased the retry duration for personal computer and physical server backup tasks. The system will retry backup until 72 hours after a device is disconnected.
The increase to 72 hours before terminating a backup session will be useful. As far as I can tell when a session is terminated the next time seems to require a fully backup, or at least a lot of data is said to be checked.

This will cover a hasty exit on Friday* and finish on Monday :)

*POETS day as it was called... <mumble>** Off Early, Tomorrow's Saturday

**Push, yes that was it! Nothing else ;)
