Hi. I have a mirror backup set. I wanted to test FBackup was working so I added a new text file (file1.txt) and amended another text (file2.txt) in the folder I selected.
I started the backup for the 2nd time and found it created the new file (file1.txt) (as expected) but didn't overwrite file2.txt. I then tried amending file1.txt then running again. This time FBackup overwrote file1.txt but still file2.txt hasn't been updated. Is this a bug? I'm using version 4.6.

In additional to the last comment. I've just noticed the date modified flag of file2.txt gets updated everytime I run the backup. So FBackup knows the file has changed in the source, does something to the file that changes the date modified, but the actual contents of the file doe not get updated.
Everytime I run it generates the following in the log:
