With the new firmware release on Jun 11 (1.03.41), changes were made to remote backup software.
My backups are now rebuilding ALL files, not just the changes.
I had 4 auto-run jobs set up since May 24, and they ran nightly. I have 2 EX2s, on two different networks. One job for each Share on the main EX2. It took over 48 hours for the first set of jobs to run. After the initial jobs ran, it then just backed up the changed files. On June 11, an entire re-build was started, and here is why…
the new release creates new directories on the back-up device. In the SHARE directed by the auto-run job, it creates ta directory called [Deleted-privacy] _remote_backup (where the WUQ… is a device identifier) then under that, it creates yet another directory that is the job name, followed by another sub-directory that is the equivalent of the Share on the source EX2 device. The software then finds NO files, so an entire re-build is done.
So, why would a new release do this? Create all these unnecessary additional directories and cause an entire re-build of the backup? I don’t know, but I need to copy all the old files to the new structure somehow so I don’t have to rebuild everything.
Can someone please explain the new structure? I will be creating ONE new backup job, that auto-runs backups of all 4 Shares on the main device. What should that file structure look like? I’ll manually build it, then drag/drop the old backup files into the new structure. Is there another way anyone can see to fix this situation other than that?
thanks for your time.
