I am TOTALLY confused. File server backups are not working correctly
OK. I had to reset my file server backup for one reason or another. I picked individual folders from the C:\ drive as in the picture below. This is how i've ALWAYS done this. So it appears that it is going to backup what I told it too. it did not, in spades.
This next screen shot shows the 'successful ' backup from last night, and the expanded section below shows what i've come to notice is the REAL backup of the folders I selected above:
Notice how the first part, where I have selected individuals like on the one labeled C:\ show up but they are TOTALLY EMPTY. not to mention i've no idea 1.) how having the C:\ drive selected picked up my individual users (some of which I specifically excluded which I don't get) and 2.) how I got it to do that in the first place. Like I said i'm used to picking individual users. Do I have to (I wonder) select the C:\ drive, expand that and then pick the users instead of just picking them OUTSIDE of the C:\ drive (yes, i'm that confused). This next screenshot shows my 'successful ' full back up from last night which...has nothing. Notice the last date which is august of last year:
There is nothing from last night even though it states succssful. All I got was system state:
You know what else I noticed. the saves show everyone I TOLD IT NOT TO SAVE. Am I supposed to only check users I DO NOT want to backup? like i said I don't remember it being like this. thanks in advance for all your help and I know I put a lot on so i'll clarify when needed.
