The store is in a USB drive with ext4. No funny business.

That's quite possible. There was a time when the server crashed multiple times
and I think the problems with the backup store started back then.

Unfortunately not. It was a long time ago. I had a lot of patience ;)

Nothing besides the crashes.

Yes, no problem. Do I need the latest software only for the server or for all
my clients, too?

> And what version of Box Backup are you running?

On the server:
markus at benji % dpkg -l \*boxbackup\* | egrep '^ii'
ii  boxbackup-server                       0.11~rc8~r2714-1~bpo60+1 

On client 1001:

markus at ix:~$ dpkg -l \*boxbackup\* | egrep '^ii'
ii  boxbackup-client                     0.11.1~r2837-1   

Hmm, I see that they differ. But that can be only since a short time, when I
upgraded ix to wheezy. benji still has squeeze.
