redleader,

What kind of machine is FS SERVER?  Is it some kind of NAS that runs under Linux or Windows?  If so, try repairing that with the appropriate software.

Also Retrospect 15.6.WHAT.WHAT?  Try upgrading your "backup server" and Client(s) to Retrospect Mac 15.6.1.105, which doesn't seem to have the "bad release" problems of 15.6.0.

I'm guessing this is Filemaker Server machine running under OS X...

"Content" files uploaded to your database server and linked rather than embedded -- in this case a PDF -- are backed up once by Filemaker's internal scripts and then, subsequently, linked to so that you don't waste disk space. I *think* the latest backup has the real file and the previous backups contain links, but that should be easy enough for you to check. Check the timestamps in the paths above and you'll see that the older "instance" of the file can't be linked to the newer.

So either you haven't duplicated that later "instance" or, for some reason, RS can't recreate the link in the older FMS backup directory. I'd worry about the first and honestly not care about the second since if I had to roll back to an earlier version of my database it wouldn't be that much extra work to manually copy "content" files into the right place.

Which is it, and what are you duplicating to?
