We noticed that our incremental backups were taking almost as long as
fulls. We then noticed files that have not been changed in over a year
still had the archive bit set even though they were successfully backed up
(several times).

We ran a single file test backup and it did not reset the archive bit.
This tells me there is either a problem with our backup software
(EMC/Legato Networker) or possibly the TSA.

We have opened a ticket with EMC on this but they don't have an answer
yet. Any ideas on this? In the meantime, I'm simply running some batch
jobs to manually reset the archive bits on files with modified dates older
than 6 months.
