10.5: View exactly which files Time Machine backed up
Authored by: DeepYogurt on Mar 27, '13 07:09:39PM

I'm running this "timedog" command (the one with the new code to enable the "-n" switch listed above by JDSmith on Jul 23, 2008) on Mountain Lion and noticed something that makes no sense. When run it says at the end that "3510 changed files/directories" but if I use the "wc" command on the output it says that it contains only 793 lines. Shouldn't there be 3510 + 2 lines in the file (2 extra lines are the line at the start saying which folders are being compared and the line at the end that gives the totals), since each file or folder that is different is supposed to be listed? Why such a big difference in what it says are different and what it lists as different?
