[Dirvish] Dirvish/rsync thinking partition is 'new'

Hello All

I've been backing up one of my linux servers for years. Last night out
of the blue, it's thinking that my /home partition (which is a separate
drive) needs to be completely backed up. It's very odd, I looked at the
backups prior and only a few files were backed up (as it should have),
but last night.. it tried to backup everything from that drive. 

I deleted the vault and re-ran it again, and I can confirm that it
wants to backup the whole thing. Also, one directory from another drive
on the same server is doing the same thing. Not sure what to do to
address this problem. Is this a problem on the client machine? Is this
a problem with the first image for this server in the bank?

I checked for any drive issues on the client.. and no signs of any
drive errors. No changes have been made to the partition, etc either. 

Any help is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need any
information from me to help address this.

Thanks!
hanji
