Every day seems to bring a new surprise. I've been working around extremely slow backups for a while, but here's a new one. Got 1.4 TB of data backed up over the weekend with multiple jobs that were allegedly successful, but looking through the catalog to do a test restore shows very little of it. Re-cataloging doesn't help, and the jobs are set to append (not overwrite).

I'm thinking about trying out sep sesam, but I'm also considering rsyncing raw data. I have NSS volumes, so I'll need to capture file trustee assignments. That won't matter for storing individual files under folders with trustees set, but I'd need it if I had to restore a whole volume.

Anyone else out there doing something like that?
