Backup did NOT copy some files, MOVED others

Greetings-

I checked the size and number of files of a fresh backup set and found that it did not match the source. The destination had 1100 files too few.

I used the file/folder compare program called Beyond Compare to read both folders. I found that the backup did NOT copy many files. Also, I noticed that the backup MOVED many files from the source to the destination.

I am using a ReadyNAS Pro2, and running RAIDiator 4.2.24.

Any assistance with this would be appreciated.

What backup settings were you using?

Thank you for your response, Stephen.

This issue occurred with the same settings that have worked for over a year.

Are there settings that would delete files from the server and not backup other files?

I think I was hoping for info on known issues or the need for a firmware update...

For the moment I have adjusted the files manually, and will monitor this situation. I'll try to remember to post her what i find in case it may be of help to anyone else.

Thanks, Bill

I understand that this is a new issue, but without the details of the settings I don't think there's much we can say.
