Sorry about this, but can I try to persuade you to download and install
a new pre-0.04 version?
I noticed that previous versions had problems with unexpected file
modification times. This happens when you back up a file server, and
the clients don't have synchronized clocks. The current version coped
OK with small variations, but not the major ones I found on one
Anyway, I have rather dramatically modified how it detects changes,
which solves this problem. However, I would really like it tested
before I release it to the wider world. As a bonus, this new method
uses less memory.
I hope that you're verifying your backups occasionally?
/usr/local/bin/bbackupquery "compare -a" quit
This is how I caught this problem.
Thanks for all your help and support with this project.
