I noticed that the latest "daily" backup folder, daily.0, created today, has a timestamp several days old.
I then checked my logs:
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:01] /usr/bin/rsnapshot -v -c /etc/rsnapshot/rsnapshot-humanresources.conf daily: started
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:01] echo 18605 > /var/run/rsnapshot-humanresources.pid
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:01] mv /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/daily.1/ /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/daily.2/
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:01] mv /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/daily.0/ /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/daily.1/
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:10] mv /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/hourly.8/ /media/backup/userdata/human_resources/daily.0/
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:10] rm -f /var/run/rsnapshot-humanresources.pid
[13/Jun/2012:01:00:10] /usr/bin/rsnapshot -v -c /etc/rsnapshot/rsnapshot-humanresources.conf daily: completed successfully
I can see that hourly.8 was turned into daily.0.
What's the point of running a daily job at a certain time if it's not only not creating a new backup for changed files, but ALSO it's creating the latest daily from my most out-of-date hourly.
I assume I'm missing something here.
