Re: [rdiff-backup-users] Backup not identifying changed file, even thoug

I've tried adding the "--compare-hash" switch. The MAN page isn't specific about the function of --compare-hash, however it appears to be only for VERIFICATION and not for candidate IDENTIFICATION, as causes rdiff to simply show a report telling me this file is not in sync. When I use that switch no backups occur from what I can tell as no increments are created.

Is there some way to explicitly force Rdiff to create a backup of specific files? What am I missing, because this seems like a huge gap in functionality if it's only using file timestamps.
