I set up Retrospect to backup a Solaris server once a week. On the UNIX client I added some directories in the retroclient.excludes file so they would not be backed up. I will be discussing the results of two backup sessions in a two week span. Both backups used the same backup set.
The first run of the backup went as expected and none of the excluded files were backed up. However, when the script ran the second week it only backed up the files that had changed since the last backup (as expected) and also included all the files that are on the exclude list. I checked the client and the exclude option is turned on. Is this a bug or is there an option that needs to be set in the application to keep the excluded data from being backed up on the second backup?
