My Time Machine is going for a year quite strong, but I recently noticed it is not including new directories in its backup. Basically new directories are being excluded by rule or error and I'd like some help figuring out which.
(1) It still does its normal backup. The sytem log files says:
Dec 21 19:35:59 leosbook com.apple.backupd: Starting standard backup Dec 21 19:35:59 leosbook com.apple.backupd: Backing up to: /Volumes/Wisdom/Backups.backupdb Dec 21 19:36:02 leosbook com.apple.backupd: 2.28 GB required (including padding), 319.50 GB available Dec 21 19:36:04 leosbook com.apple.backupd: [...] Dec 21 19:36:07 leosbook com.apple.backupd: Backup completed successfully.
(2) The newly created directory is not excluded. Checking via
tmutil reveals in Terminal:
> tmutil isexcluded "/Users/bongu/Pictures/Import/Eye-Fi/NewDir" + /Users/bongu/Pictures/Import/Eye-Fi/NewDir
(3) However the new directory
NewDir never gets backed up. The directory is not part of the latest backup:
> ls /Volumes/Wisdom/Backups.backupdb/leosbook/latest/book/Users/bongu/Pictures/Import/Eye-Fi/NewDir ls: /Volumes/[...]: no such file or directory
How does this possibly happen? And any idea how can I resolve it?
