Ah, now i got it. Thanks for your patience ;-) it's interesting that the current backups (rsync the Data.fs directly) never caused any problems. i guess that's due to the fact that the Data.fs infact never changed during the backups yet. i'll change that to backup a local copy of the Data.fs instead in future. a simple solution would be to run 'cp Data.fs Data.fs.safe' for every instance just before backuppc starts the rsync process. thanks for your help, jonas
