incremental job

Level 6

Hi guys,
Can some one tell me how can my backup job that should run an incremental backup, on its own decided to run a full backup of some of the servers in the job? 

We have a job that sohlud run a full backup once a 3 month and after that should only run a incermental backup, there has not been any changes on the folders and files rights or scan by AV. This job must backup 8 servers, but last night 3 of the servers haven been backup incrementaly and other 5 servers being fully backed up.

Any idea how this can happens? we have BE 21.0



I think some programs are changes the archive bit of file.

Any other backup jobs ?

There is other job on the same folders that run a diffrential backup.

We did not have this issue before even with the diff job!!



Is it possible that because we running the incremental job for almost 3 month a full job will be forced?

BE defaults to full backups when it can't do incremental for whatever reason.

Something probably got corrupted in in your job so BE will run fulls until you recreate the job.

I had a weekly job that had the same issue.
