Shutdown on first backup
Author Message
Post Shutdown on first backup 
Hi

I've installed rsnapshot and its working great. However during my first snapshot the remotehost shutdown (I accidently shut it down, i forgot the first one takes so long).

When the cronjob runs the next backup will just "pickup where it left off"?
Is this going to be ok or would you advise me to rm -r the daily.x files and start my first run from scratch?
Will it eventually catch up if it doesn't complete?

Tim

Yes. The only thing that might trip you up is if the interrupted run
left a lock file lieing around, which you might have to delete by hand.
