Incremental backup still doing full

Post by Hermes101 »

Hello,
made several simple tasks, like:
From one folder to another
Backup type: Incremental
Schedule type: Daily at 22:00
Dynamics:
full copies to keep:2
Make one full every: 10
but Cobian doing full backup every day! What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

I faced a similar problem several times. Even yesterday, about the same story. Until I understood tightly ...

I dont understand what you understand tightly?
Let's say you going to backup folder which is 10 GB.
If you do Incremental backup, so first backup will be full with 10GB, next one incremental should small with only changes were made and so on... but in my situation it is doing full every day. and my disk fulfilled in a week.
So where I made mistake?

An interesting question. Dear Hermes101, do a FULL BACKUP. Maybe files have been added to the source folder since the creation of the FULL BACKUP? This is an option.

Check user's privelegies. User has to be permitted to set additional attributes. Cobian Backup does not check that archive attribute has been removed successfully, and do not show any notifications about this issue.

PS sorry for my english :)

Actually it shows those errors as well but you need to change the log type to Verbose. It will slow down your backup a bit though.
