I'm using backuppc version 2.1.2-6 (debian stable package). I've got
backuppc nicely backing up a number of machines, on a regular basis,
which is all working quite well.
I would now like to create an archive of the backup so that it can be
written to DVD and moved offsite for archival/etc purposes (you know the
Anyway, the archive seems to be a lot bigger than the actual backup, and
I'm trying to work out if I am doing something wrong....
For example, on the host summary page I have "host3" with a full size/GB
listed as 113.82 and when I go to archive it shows up with host2 as
233.18 (I assume GB). This seems to be a pretty big difference, and
makes a huge difference to the number of DVD's required to store this
Does the archive simple store the most recent backup, or does it somehow
archive every version of backup which is available?
