you need to go to RESTORE GUI, Edit/Show Active/inactive files.
Then, if a file was not changed, you'll see only version backed up the first time, it is normal.

From the log you posted I see the incremental has updated (because they were changed from last backup) only 100 out of 5.143 files: this means that the most remained unchanged from previous backup.

You should check on one among those 100  files that were actually changed.

hope this helps

you have backed up these folders:


but you forgot to set *:

you should set:


with the option -subdir=yes

otherwise it will only backup folders and not the files into the folders !
