For smb and tar any file that has changed since the last full backup
is included in an incremental (specifically, whose mtime is later than
1 hour before the last successful full dump started). Changes in
permissions or ownership, or deleted files, are not detected in an
Rsync will be better for incrementals: if the length, mtime, permissions
or ownership has changed since the last backup then it will be included
in the incremental. Plus deleted files will be detected.

Any ideas what might be going on here? BTW, I can *view* all files from the
CGI interface just fine (i.e. I can click on the text files and see their
