I am looking for help to see what is the best way of backup/rollback files for our application. First, I do understand that rollback only restores files that are overwritten by the installation itself and only triggered by an error during the installation or by the user canceling the installation.
We regularly update our application (same name, updated version) and each time we update, we deliver all the previous content/files, but only want to apply files that are different from the installer than what on the targeted system. That is why we only need to back up whatever files we are delivering, NOT everything, it could be 2 or 50 files. So I use the overwritepolicy to "onlyIfNewer" to achieve this.
Now, my question is, what is the best way to use IB to back up only the files that is installed? How do I know/check which files get installed and which skipped?
Please let me know if I need to clear myself more, appreciate the help.
