Hello, I was running a backup onto a NAS which got stuck half way through the 'compare' stage. 1) Am I correct in understanding that 'Verify' on the media set in question will check the media set against the MD5 digests of the original source files which were made during backup? 2) If the MD5 wasn't created for comparison will I be told in the log? The manual says the file will be checked if it can be read if it can't be compared, but it would be nice to know. I'm essentially trying to avoid repeating a rather long backup which got stuck on the compare stage and would like to know if the 'Verify' is doing the compare for me? Thanks
Hi, I've been using a copy script to backup from a NAS(ext4) to an external HD (HFS format). The operation completed and took nearly 9 hours for about 95,000 files. On verification roughly 80 files show a compare error "different data size". Is this to be expected when copying between different filesystems? Would I be better off with a backup script rather than copy, which I only used as I didn't want an incremental backup? Thanks
