I’ve spent the past week slowly uploaded a few more dirs at a time from my 300G home folder. I was finally ready to upload the whole thing and noticed that it was uploading cache files. I thought I had excluded these *cache expression exclude (not regex). So I stopped the upload, went back and modified it to cache, and backed up again.
Only problem was, I had mistakenly entered an exclude for *. Total upload size was 50MB.
I’ve corrected that and am re uploading. However, it’s taking quite a while on some video files that
- were some of the first files I backed up
- definitely haven’t changed since this whole process started.
Am I back at ground zero, or are these incremental backups just going to take a lot longer than I expected (do they need to rescan large files to make sure they haven’t changed? each time?)
Or may this just be an issue since I stopped the backup part-way through?
