Hi,
my 2TB drive filled up very quickly, seems Dirvish was to "blame"........
A new vault is having all files copied instead of linked. I run many 
backups, the server is Debian, most of
the clients are Linux but a new one is WIn7 64Bit, using the CwRsync 
server on that. So here is the stat of a file that has been copied:

zotac-sdb2:root at zotac: stat _F8A0957.CR2
   File: `_F8A0957.CR2'
   Size: 32937298        Blocks: 64408      IO Block: 4096   regular file
Device: 805h/2053d      Inode: 876938      Links: 1

I'm doing now tests on a test directory with just 3 files in it, so 
there are no updates going on AFAIK.
Only thing I can see is the "Change" time has changed, and it has 
changed to the time of the last Dirvish
test run. But Modification time is the same, as I expect it to be.

Here is the invocation information from dirvish:

Here is the client side config:
uid = 0
gid = 0
use chroot = false
strict modes = false
hosts allow = *
log file = rsyncd.log
max verbosity = 9

[test]
path = /cygdrive/d/Rsynctest
read only = yes
transfer logging = yes

My take is that Dirvish really thinks the file has changed, but I have 
no idea why?

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers Brian
