R8 not backing up all files

Recommended Posts

Backing up practically no files at all really.

 

All Windows clients. Retrospect has been running in this setup for about 2 months and no machine that it is backing up has more than 600 files backed up.

 

When I am able to browse the backups it seems that most of the files that were backed up are temp files.

 

All scripts are set to Backup All Files Except Cache Files.

 

Please help :)

Do you mean in each new Normal (Incremental) backup there is only a subset of files copied?

 

That would be normal behavior, depending on how many files changed between the initial backup (Full) and the later runs.

 

Perhaps a better description of what you are doing and what you see when you do it.

Sorry for the confusion but I'm a little baffled myself.

 

I do now know if it's just since the last incremental, how could I find this out?

 

The total used space for my media set(about 500Gb) is about right for my 9 clients, but when I browse the Past Backup of any machine the green check is mostly by temp files and things located in Local Settings.

 

Mind you, this is all only on the rare occasion that I'm able to access these backups.

Assuming you are backing up to the same media set each time -- and you have "matching" turned on (which is the default) -- the "Past Backups" will show you what files are incrementally backed up to the media set for each backup.
