incremental backups
« on: April 04, 2012, 11:42:10 AM »
Hello,

I am doing backups over a nfs share. The idea is to do a full backup on sunday and an incremental one every other day.

The current plan is:
Number of rotating backup sets: 7
Daily backups in each set: 1
Full backup is allowed on: Sunday

The problem is that it is doing full backups every day.

Any hint/idea?

Cheers.

Reverse the numbers on "Number..." and "Daily..." ;)

Thanks a lot. I have patched /etc/e-smith/events/actions/workstation-backup-dar as explained in the link, let's see how it goes next sunday.
