Full backup happening instead of Normal...

Recommended Posts



I have Retrospect (latest version for Mac) on an Xserve set to do a Normal back up mon-fri. Its set to back up 6 share points, 4 on my Apple RAID and 2 on my Xserve. It had been fine, where it would (I thought) back up any data that has changed. Over the last few weeks it appears to be doing a full backup of all data, instead of just data that has been modified. This means instead of usual 2 LTO3 tapes a day, its adding and extra 2 tapes per day. It never used to do this. Only way to get back to 2 tapes a day is to do a recycle media backup. The last 2 fridays backups are now on 4 or 5 tapes!!


Can any one advise what could be going wrong?


Thanks in advance
