Before I open an issue on github I wanted to ask here if I have misunderstood something or am doing something fundamentally wrong.
I made a backup and sent the data and to the restic rest server. So far so good.

Today I created a second snapshot and here is something I don’t understand.

What surprises me is why the number of new files is so large during the second run. I have hardly changed anything in my files in the meantime. I would have expected restic to recognize this.
The command i run in both cases:
restic backup /home/usr*/home/www/ /home/usr*p* /usr/src/nextco/ --exclude-file /root/exclude -v
The Source FS is a is an ext4 on an md device what hdds uses. And the ext4 is mounted with
