Incremental back up not working properly

Postby » Mon Mar 15, 2010 12:43 pm

There must be a setting wrong in my setup. I have some of my folders set to incremental backup and they are backed up daily. However, it is doing a full backup each day, not incremental. Should it not only back up what has changed since the last incremental backup? Please respond asap as I am still in the trial period.

Yes, the incremental type will back up only new and modified files since the last backup execution.
To see what the problem is, please send us to
- the .bkc catalog file for that job. You can find the .bkc file if you go to View->Open folder->Destination folder.
- the .log file for the last backup job. To find it, please go to: View->Job Logs->Last Backup Log.
Put the files into a zip archive.
