FB9, Fast mirror

Post by Beckler »

Fast mirror doesn't seem to work properly after update to FBackup ver. 9. I've tried with and without 'Smart file scanning' but it does the full copy every time. I created a new test backup in FB9 with 2 files and the log shows both files are added every time, even when I run it again right after it's done. It's supposed to only add new files.

Same here. Very, very frustrating.
I have thousands of files going to a local synched cloud directory and do not want to upload them all over again.
Even with a fast NAS box it is a real pain.

Thank you.

Hi,

We don't have such problems here.
Please send us the .fkc catalog file and the last backup log for that job, to info[at]fbackup[dot]com

Exactly the same problem - I now have multiple copies of the same files because all the files are backed up even when they already exist- why issue an upgrade which causes these issues -version 8.9 worked fine. so frustrating and I will have to disable the programe or will run out of back up space with all these duplicates

I will email a log and FKC file.
I have tried with a new job created and that seemed to work - it is imported jobs which fail.

I have the same problem.
I tried both importing the back-up job from FB8 and creating new. In both cases every time all files are being copied instead of only the newly added once...

I emailed my Fkc and log files and the problem has now been recreated.
Hopefully an update is imminent.
I see that the shadow copy for open files also is not available?

Glad to know I'm not the only one. This is a nightmare, because a fresh backup and test of all my data takes about 24 hours. Hope this is fixed soon.
