Incremental backup contains too many files

Recommended Posts

I am using version 7.5.251.


I ran a full backup; this backed up about 14Gb. I then changed the selector, so that it excluded temp folders and temporary internet files, instead of specifically identifying the explicit paths.


To verify that I had done this correctly, I started an incremental backup, about 2 hours after the full backup had finished. This identified over 10Gb of "changed" files that needed to be backed up. Most of these files are identical to files that were backed up previously. This is a home computer, with very little activity going on.


Is there any reason why a large group of unchanged files could be incorrectly tagged for backup?
