Anton requested more information:
Which directory do you mean with 'root directory'?

You should check the target directory defined in /etc/sbackup.conf for
root and ~/.config/sbackup/sbackup.conf for user.

Question #216144 on sbackup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/216144

Status: Needs information = Open

Roger Norton gave more information on the question:
I ran both of the instances of Simple Backup Config shown in the dash.
 As you say, one of them required my password, and the other did not.
There does not appear to be a backup file (*.ful or *.inc) in the root
directory.

 I should clarify my question. There are, as you mentioned, two instances
 of Simple Backup Config and Simple Backup Restore in the dash. One of
 them runs as you (user), the other as super user (a.k.a. root). You
 cannot tell the difference, except that when you start the super user
 one, you'll be asked for your password ('to perform administrative
 tasks' -- unless you just also did something else as super user, because
 the credentials linger around for some time like 5 minutes or so).

 So, my question was about which instance (root or user) you ran,
 possibly different ones each time. This has no relevance to which
 directories are backed up, that is dictated by the configuration (which
 is also different for root or user).

Roger Norton is still having a problem:
The only folder in root is the desktop.  I didn't do a backup as root.

 Anton proposed the following answer:
 Yes, two copies do exist. One is user and the other root. This should be
 indicated but isn't so they appear identical. I posted a patch to fix
 this some time ago (I think it should be somewhere on lp).

 Thinking about that, possibly you did your first backup as user and the
 second as root by accident?

2012-12-12 Thread Roger Norton
Question #216144 on sbackup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/216144

Roger Norton gave more information on the question:
I had deleted the previous backups before carrying out the new full
backup.  I think the increase was due to the list of folders included
in the backup being changed - presumably accidentally by me - as the
larger backup included the default folders, whereas my previous
setting only included the home folder.  Oddly enough, none of the
other settings (backup frequency, destination etc.) were reset to
default at the same time.

Is it customary to have two copies of each of the Simple Backup-
Configuration and Simple Backup- Restoration on the dash?  This
configuration was set automatically when the dash was first installed
with the relevant ubuntu update.

 Any chance that your latest backup also includes the previous backup,
 e.g. because you are backing up to a (local) drive that is included?
