I am backing up the /home folder on a Linux machine, and the destination backup is getting pretty large, even when there has been no activity on the machine since the previous backup. It seems to be a config, cache, etc that is changing constantly, and a new copy is being saved every few hours when the backup runs. I have excluded as many files and folders as I can think of, but I just can’t pinpoint where the extra gigs of backups are coming from every few hours.
Is there a way that I can see a list of any file that was changed and/or backed up ONLY on the last backup? Or better yet, to view by backup date and time?
When I run the find command through the webUI, there are just too many files to make any sense of it.
