- Organization: ISG-3
I am making incremental backup of my data using script, containing
tar -g $ARCHNAME.list -X $ARCHNAME.exclude --recursive -c $DIRECTORY |
bzip2 -9 > $BACKUPDIR/$ARCHNAME-$BACKUPTIME.tar.bz2
to archieve my data. This expected to create incremental archieves, and
it works well with tar 1.13.25-1 (e.g. only changed files are archivated
on next run of script). With tar 1.13.25-3 I noticed, that files,
located in the subdirectories of main data directory ($DIRECTORY) are
always archivated, even if they weren't changed. I suspect, that this
situation is a bug.
Now I am using tar 1.13.25-1 to avoid this situation. Unfortunately, I
have no possibility to test tar 1.13.25 on UNIX-like systems. My system
information: Windows 98 SE, Current Cygwin (cygwin 1.5.5-1) installation
except tar. If you need additional information, please ask.
Thank you for your attention, hope that this is information will be useful.
