Hi Ben, thanks for the prompt, courteous response!
I may be confusing terms. I have many incremental backups within the backup
directory, about 48 (I'm counting files that start with "increments.").
If a current_mirror inc is not an increment (sounds like not), then what can I
do about restoring it to one? The backup runs on a cron, so two at once isn't
really possible. Perhaps the backup failed for reasons unknown and left the
current_mirror incs state at 2?
How to restore it to 1?
