repeat backups take same time

Postby darrelj » Sat Feb 10, 2018 2:15 am

Once backed up- I thought all scheduled backups that happen after that will take very shorter time. But I experienced that it does a full backup as new rather than backing up what was only changed.

Is this correct?

What is the backup type you selected in Backup Properties->Type page?
If you selected Full, then a full backup will be executed every time.
If you selected Mirror, the first execution will be a complete backup, then only new and modified files will be backed up.

I have a related issue. I'm using Mirror and still I've watched it go thru files already in the backup and re-add the same file. A block of like 20 large files that I know weren't modified by me. Maybe a modified attribute is triggering backup incorrectly?
