    I asked it for Incremental Backup, yet it performed what appears to be Full Backup! :rant2:

    IT is quite a diverse field... just because I work in IT doesn't make me an expert in every single IT-related subject :wtcslap:

    So now I'm compressing a 50GB backup file :hsugh:

    *EDIT*
    30 mins later... it's still compressing said file :hsugh:

    Where does the backup client store the meta data on the compression? Is it there stating what files were backed up when so it knows what to do in an incremental?

    Were the files marked properly with the archive bit during the first backup?

    Edit: Ahh crap, I edited your post instead of replying. :o
