    Default Unscheduled full backup attempt

    We running:
    Release 7.1.4_GA_2555.UBUNTU8 UBUNTU8 NETWORK edition.

    Today I discovered that our server attempted to run an unscheduled full backup on all accounts last night. I can see no reason for this. Our last full backup ran as usual on Friday and successfully complete on Saturday. We did not create any new accounts or modify the server in any way over the weekend.

    Does anyone know why this might happen? The only thing I can think of is the Daylight Savings time change may be somehow responsible?

    I've seen this happen quite a bit. Currently migrating across to Zimbra and if I have had a day where I've moved over some users with large mailboxes it'll do a full backup. I'm guessing it could be to tidy up the redo logs as they become rather large.
