I'm running 8.10 here, and have sbackup installed. I have configured it manually to backup to my ftp server on my local lan. All checks out OK, and it does send files to the proper directory.
What confuses me though, is that it creates a new directory with two files each time. "excludes" and "packages". I have told it to backup the "Documents" directory, but it does not seem to do that.

Any help would be appreciated.
