Differential Job now Running FULL backups!
Here's a wierd situation I'm having:
I'm using BE2012 SP2 and have a backup job that has two methods: a FULL and a Differential. This job was created about 3 months ago and ran as I wanted it to until Wednesday of last week.
When I checked the Differential job results that ran Wednesday night, the Differential job was was still in progress. I found this to be pretty odd since the average Differential run is under 30 minutes and averages about 50 GB in size. The original fileshare size is 1.2 TB, which takes about 20-22 hours to complete when I run a FULL job over the weekends.
Here's the wierd part: Now when a Differential job is running, it literally performs a FULL backup of this 1.2 TB fileshare! The job was not edited or anything.
Does anyone have an explanation as to why this is now happening? I have another network that this very same phenomenon has started happening on too.
