NTBackup to file - Verify removes Archive bit on bkf file - bug?

    I am using NTBACKUP to backup files to a file on the network. This file is
    then backed up by another server with tape backup.

    Problem is, if the machine that does the backup to file is also asked to
    verify the .bkf file, it removes the archive bit and thus the tape backup
    does not back it up.

    I am currently not using verify as a workaround.

    I have an identical situation however, but using NT Backup for XP Pro, and
    it does not remove the archive bit and so works fine.

    Is this a bug in the 2003 version or is there some reason for this?
