Hello list,

Running dirvish-expire over the vault "netraider-m-personal" says:

cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0902-0638 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0906-0644 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0907-0635 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0908-0637 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0909-0621 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0913-0619 No unexpired good images
cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0914-0631 No unexpired good images

cannot expire netraider-m-personal:default:2005-0921-0629 No unexpired good images

The follwoing is the list of images in the vault, with the last line from the summary file:

2005-0901-0640/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0902-0638/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0903-0637/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0906-0644/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0907-0635/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0908-0637/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0909-0621/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0910-0630/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0913-0619/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0914-0631/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0915-0630/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0916-0633/summary = Status: error (23) -- partial transfer
2005-0917-0630/summary = Status: error (23) -- partial transfer
2005-0920-0613/summary = Status:  (13) --
2005-0921-0629/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0922-0623/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0923-0626/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0924-0626/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0927-0624/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0928-0634/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender
2005-0929-0630/summary = Status: warning (24) -- file vanished on sender

Even if there are no good images in the vault, dirvish-expire should delete expired images, as they are really expired, right?

This is a vault for a windows client, and it takes so much time, that there is always either "file vanished on sender" due to the time it takes to rsync, or "partial transfer", due to a "failed: File name too long (91)" in rsync.
Even if we don't care about those two errors, this vault never expires any image, and it will eventually fill our backup filesystem.

Do you think this is the correct behaviour, or should it be changed?

Best regards everyone
