With this version, all solved
CMW 6 does very fast backups, and it takes less space with backup because it only does deltas, very nice.
Does it only do delta's if you've done one "dup" style backup already? If it does delta's then I guess you have to keep the original non-delta full backup around until you;re ready to get rid of all the deltas? Just curious.

Hello - I've run into a backup problem using the default (dup) method and am wondering if there's any info I can get or setup in advance to log errors during backup like enabling a log?
Mine made it through /boot /recovery /system, then said freeing space, done freeing space, and has been on /data for ~25 minutes which is about 3 times what the 18.104.22.168 I was using before took. I don't see any sign of movement.
I'd be happy to get you a log if such a thing is possible to enable.
Edit: Oh yeah: I had 7617MB free before beginning backup.
Edit for more data : I gave up on (dup) backup which has failed 2 times for me on /data. I reverted quickly and retested with 22.214.171.124 and it worked quickly in tar (it's only method), so now I'm trying (tar) backup from v6 of yours and it also appears to be hanging. Has anyone done a backup and restore of a populated system with this backup yet to be sure it works? If tar works, then I'll be fine and report back at the end of this thread,.
Edit for result of tarball backup: It appears to have completed, so I'm going to try two things, accessing it from TB in userspace booted, and then restoring it if I can read the format at all. Will continue with updates until I know it restores. Oh yeah, as far as time to backup goes, it is ~2 times as long as 126.96.36.199, but it is doing more (/boot and /recovery).
Edit for more info during tar backup: Length of backup is very long, ~30 minutes for what winds up being a 1.5G backup. Is it possible to calc md5sum while performing the backup rather than making a separate pass? Ok, off to try the restore.
