Subject: Diff backups abruptly become full backups. Why?

Alas, no responses.
Too much information I know.

To continue with the above saga, on the 8 Nov, a couple of days after backup job "2" did it's scheduled FULL backup, it correctly did a DIFFERENTIAL backup, (yayy!!) and the subsquent scheduled DIFF backup also ran correctly.

The reason for the change completely baffles me, I have made no changes, and for the last couple of weeks I have given up even looking at the settings in ZBCD. Just resigned myself to deleting the burgeoning folder full of backup files on a very regular basis.

So now the software is working perfectly.

But what random occurance does it have in store next month?

Well, I have discovered this software few months ago, so far so good, do all backups full, diff. and incr. manually, so far with no strange behavior. That too, i do not use catalog files although the are created by the software.

Bruce, a pity you've not had a response.
I use a similar regime, not yet had the same occurence as you had, but I'd certainly be interested in views on why it happened. Please post if similar happens. Presumably its okay since.

Yes, it seems to be working fine. Job 2 missed it's monthly FULL backup a couple of weeks ago, but I'd say that was 'cos I deleted a heap of pending scheduled backups after returning from holiday.
