    Default Do I still need to update indexes?

    In A5v5, whenever I backed up a database, I had to update the indexes - they used to get all garbled up.
    I just did a couple of backups in v.8 and everything seems to be fine; so do I still need to update indexes or is the update now done automatically in the backup process?
    I know I still need to update indexes when/if I restore a backup - but I'm wondering if the original database needs an index update after a backup.

    Thanks.

    Shouldn't have. Garbled in the original or in the backup copy?

    Restoring a backup should return everything to the previous state, no index updating should be required.

    Shouldn't need to. The restore just replaces the current files with the backed up copies.
    - but I'm wondering if the original database needs an index update after a backup.
    No

    Thanks!
    I thought everything looks OK, I just wanted to make sure that it's not going to get all messed up later on.
