That's exactly what I thought, and have been watching & seeing the daily merges happening right up until the 28th April which is the last mention I can see (in the job stats), even though I can see that the job is up to date with a .vbk file date-stamped early this morning.
However, looking through them again now I'm suddenly getting a regular "copy interval has expired" message but that confuses me even more! I don't yet fully understand that message (searching the forums in parallel to this post) but it's implying an issue, but still completed a .vbk last night, yet doesn't report a "merge completed" since the 28th??
Getting more & more confused! :-/
(FYI this backup copy job has been running fine for many weeks so it's not a new copy or anything along those lines)
