How long should 'update catalog' option run for?

Postby xerxes » Sun Jun 16, 2013 5:01 pm

Hi.

Did a mirror backup of approx 65GB to a WD NAS drive - went ok, taking about 8hrs.

The next day I ran the backup again and it updated only the changed files, as expected and ran in about 10mins, FBackup then displayed 'Update catalog' for 2.5hrs before starting to test the backup - this seems a bit excessive considering that it had only added 100-200 new files to the backup - what is it doing during this stage?

BTW - after 'update catalog' step it ran the 'Testing..' step which took about 10mins.


Cheers

Hi,

I need to see the last backup log to find what the problem is.
How large is the .fkc catalog file from the backup destination?

At work at the moment so can't post the logfile, however, the .fkc file was 65Mb, i'll look at the logfile & post it when I get home.
