Hoi,

 

I installed a trail of Retrospect 13 for Mac to test it if its worth upgrading (faster than Retrospect 11 ?).

 

I setup a backup script but every time I run the script not only new or modified files are added to the backup, but also a bunch of unmodified files, every time te same files. See parts of the activity logs below. (as test I run the script 3 times in a row, without touching any file on the nas)

 

The source is a Synology Nas with no indexing activated, so the file are not modified by the nas itselfs.

When i backup with Retrospect 11 these file are not backing up over and over again.

 

Is there a solution for this ? Or should I stay with Retrospect 11 ?

We are having exactly the same problem here.

 

Moved from Retrospect 11 to 13 and the incremental backups are backing up un-modified files every day. In two months it has now filled our NAS drive (Drobo).

 

This did not happen using the same scripts in Retrospect 11.

 

There is a problem with Retrospect 13.

 

Retrospect need to look into this and fix it urgently please.

 

Tom.
