Using a Python script which compares lists of paths and hashes, I am validating a Time Machine backup.
By this script, I have found that some folders and file extensions have been skipped. In particular:

  1. all the .itc files inside /iTunes/Album Artwork/Cache/
  2. some Xcode files inside the folder for a project build (some .xcscheme, .xcsettings, .xctestrun, etc. files)

That said, is this a normal behavior, namely that Time Machine can skip the backup for these types of file, or can it be due to some errors during backup execution?

  • @klanomath, yes. Thanks for suggestion. – rudicangiotti Apr 21 at 0:13
