Each time an incremental backup runs, I get an empty copy of every folder in the backup set in my backup - all of 4KB size.

Have I configured something wrong?

Task properties-Advanced-Delete empty directories.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried it, but the incremental backup is the same - when there is no change to the backup set, I just get empty directories in the backup destination.

But with this option checked, those empty directories should be deleted.

Yes, I understand that, but they are still there.

I'm backing up to a FTP location. Could this be affecting the backup?

The other advanced option 'Always create top parent directory' is greyed out and checked also.

Oh sure, that doesn't work on FTPs, only locally. ;)

I should have known!!

Anyway, thanks for a great piece of backup software - I love it!
