I have chosen Mirror backup as I read it would, after the initial backup, only backup new or changed files, but everytime it backs up all the files again taking hours!
What am I doing wrong?

Hi,
Please send us:

- the log file from View->Job Logs->Last backup log

- the fkc catalog file from View->Open Folder->Catalog Folder.

Put the files into a zip archive and send them to info[at]fbackup[dot]com

I have a similar question to the one asked above. I just started using fbackup.

What options do I choose to just add new or changed files to the backup?

Hi,
You need to use the Mirror backup type in order to copy in destination only new and modified files.
