No change to directories but mirrors incremented
Wed, 4 Sep 2002 14:04:38 +0100
I'm using rdiff-backup 0.95 to backup a directory tree from a server to a
backup server. The command line is
rdiff-backup -v5 --ssh-no-compression --exclude
ignorecase:/shared/admin/pcntl/local /shared golux::/shared
and runs daily from cron.
I have noticed that two directories (out of several hundred) give this each
time, although no files have changed within the directories:
Incrementing mirror file /shared/Data/Old Computers/Kamco/UTILS
Incrementing mirror file /shared/Data/padspwr/LogicFiles
Just the directories are being repeatedly backed-up, not the contents.
Stat-ing the first shows
File: "/shared/Data/Old Computers/Kamco/UTILS"

Can anyone explain why this should be happenning?
