I had a tap drive fail on my NT 4.0 server, so as a temperatry fix I used
smbmnt to mount the NT share on my linux box. Then I used Kdar to backup the
files. This worked fine, it took 24 hours to backup 30 Gigs. The next day I
did a incramentle backup, and it was 3.6 Gigs. So I started looking at what
was changed and descovered that 90% of the backup are files that the modified
date was changed by 1 sec. But the dates are sever months or years on the
past. It is clear to me these files did not change, but yet the date moved
forward by 1 second. I check the properties on the NT 4.0 server and the
linux box for some of these files, and they show the same date. But the full
backup shows they were a second older the day before.
Has anyone seen this kind of thing before? I don't know if the problem is
with NT, smbmnt or Dar, so I thought I might ask.
