Backup not doing incremental


About ten days ago, my backups stopped working correctly. I have them set up to do a full backup on Sundays and an incremental backup on other days. But now the incremental backup is doing a full backup each day. I think that this started happening when I deleted a subdomain, but I'm not sure. Can you please advise of what might be the issue? Thanks in advance for your help!

So during the week, the backup is larger than on the weekend when you did the full?

Is this happening to all your Virtual Servers, or just one of them?

To clarify - the incremental backups are the same size as the full backups. This is happening to each of the virtual servers.

Previously, incrementals were coming in at around 20mb, full at around 1gb - now, every backup, whether incremental or full, comes in at around 1gb.

It's as if the process isn't differentiating correctly between what's backed up in the full DB and what's not. Any idea what might be trigerring this?

Thanks for your help!

None whatsoever :-)

But, that may be a bug -- you may want to try filing a bug report using the Bugs and Issues link below, and hopefully Jamie will be able to get things straightened out for you.
