Hey all, this is my first post here, hope I dont violate any rules. Anyway my proble is that I have a backup to tape job built that back's up our whole system. When it runs I have it set to print a report. The report states this: cpio: warning: skipped ### bytes of junk. Our OS is CentOS, cant give you a version number right now, I will add it later. I have included the log file for the backup. I am at a loss as to why this is happening. I have formated the tapes, I have sucessfully wrten to them befor, the only difference is that I am doing a full system backup this time and not just a few dir. like I was befor. I was thinking that some files may still be in use, and cant be coppied. Any help would be apreciated.

Thanks in advance,
