When backing up my Debian
/home directory, the log shows two types of responses that I’m struggling to understand.
2022-11-22 02:02:05.080 WARN LIST_SKIP Skipped non-regular file docker_data/overlay2/005e6de6a3d7767ae6e2b4d72ae3ca457dfcd4872ee23935ee083f3caa6e802a/diff/etc/nginx/conf.d/dev.conf
What does WARN LIST_SKIP Skipped non-regular file docker_ tell me. And what is a “non-regular file”
2022-11-22 02:02:20.913 WARN SKIP_FILE File docker_data/overlay2/3244e51287046856abdc73c0ea3ba8c42c852240d9565d5a918146d7ba5737c8/diff/usr/bin/msgfilter cannot be opened
A similar message but with cannot be opened. What does that tell me?
This backup runs under root’s crontab.
To clarify the origins of this folder… it is generated by Docker. I relocated it to my
/home partition, as it would fill the
/ partition (15-20 GB, typically)
Thanks for your assistance.
