Backup results ambiguous
« on: March 02, 2017, 05:47:47 AM »
We have been receiving these emails for months and even though it seems like just a few emails have been skipped and that 157GB was backed up, in actual fact nothing was backed up. Where is the backup script so that I can look into what is going wrong?

How do you backup?
Can you give us more details?

Your question helped in that the backup was done by a custom rsync script that was inherited from an old SME 7 install. i have changed to the standard SME dar backup.
