i am having problems getting "dump" mode to work correctly. it seems to work fine as long as the input (-i) parameter refers to a folder -- but i'm trying to back up an entire logical drive. when i do this, the results seem to be almost random. a "dump 0" works fine, but a "dump 1" never works correctly. sometimes it yields a full backup (same as "dump 0"), other times it produces an incremental backup that consists of a lot of files that have not been changed since the "dump 0". i can't figure out any logic to it.
as a sidenote, there appears to be a DUMPDATES.TXT file that i'm guessing is a control file that determines what should and should not be backed up -- but i can't find any documentation on it. anyway, if it is in fact crucial to this process, it's also being updated somewhat at random -- which might explain why the "dump 1" is not working correctly.
