Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-304) If by mistake you give he location for the db backup as the db itself , then windows created directories recursively until windows crashes!

I haven't been following this thread very closely, so please forgive 
me if this has already been considered. I assume the problem is that 
the backup algorithm creates a directory to contain the backup, so if 
the location of the backup is in the database it tries to copy the 
contents of the backup into itself.

Would it work to make a list of the contents of the database before 
creating the backup directory, and then make the algorithm work off 
the list? I suppose it would be better to keep the user from putting 
the backup in the database, but that isn't always easy to prevent.
