    Question [SOLVED] NE Backup not working properly?

    I'm new to NE and thought I'd play around with the backup capabilities and replace the script I was using with OSS.

    I ran a backup manually, per the wiki document and it appears that the backup worked properly.

    However, subsequent backups that have run according to the default schedule don't appear to be working properly. The sizes are skewed.

    Code:
    root@zimbra:/backups/zimbra/sessions# du -h --max-depth=1
    618M    ./full-20080613.040416.793
    40M     ./incr-20080613.060021.580
    27M     ./full-20080614.060020.592
    5.9M    ./incr-20080615.060027.047
    2.7M    ./incr-20080616.060025.701
    3.7M    ./incr-20080617.060025.441
    1.3M    ./incr-20080618.060017.466
    11M     ./incr-20080619.060027.055
    708M    .
    As you can see the backup I ran manually is taking up the expected 618meg. However, the subsequent full backup is only taking 27meg!

    Did I overlook something? I did a quick search on bugzilla and didn't see a mention of this.

    Thanks!

    Edit:
    My default schedule is as follows:
    Code:
    zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmschedulebackup -D
    Default schedule set
    
    Current Schedule:
    
            f 0 1 * * 6 -a all
            i 0 1 * * 0-5 -a all
            d 1m 0 0 * * *
    zimbra@zimbra:~$

    Default

    Excellent, that was very informative.

    FYI adding the -l switch will process hard links.
    Code:
    root@zimbra:/backups/zimbra/sessions# du -h -l --max-depth=1
    618M    ./full-20080613.040416.793
    40M     ./incr-20080613.060021.580
    609M    ./full-20080614.060020.592
    5.9M    ./incr-20080615.060027.047
    2.7M    ./incr-20080616.060025.701
    3.7M    ./incr-20080617.060025.441
    1.3M    ./incr-20080618.060017.466
    11M     ./incr-20080619.060027.055
    3.1M    ./incr-20080620.060023.485

    Thanks much.
