I know I would, as I often use qrecall to double check if I did something "stupid" (or one of my other products that deletes duplicates automatically did)
Assuming I have room on my backup, is there really a reason for the system to Merge layers (it's set for daily) or should I just rely on Rolling Merge to keep a series of incremental backups on my system?

Thanks,
Jeffrey
I was trying to repair an archive, and QRecall is stuck displaying the "Opening Archive" command (it's on a NAS drobo drive), with no progress being shown for hours. I don't want to interrupt the process unless I'm sure QRecall isn't doing anything. Should I just kill the QRecallHelper process? Clicking the "Stop" button does absolutely nothing.

BTW the log file is not of any help, all it says is

Action 2019-12-19 20:12:19 ------- Repair UserBU
Action 2019-12-19 20:12:19 archive: /Volumes/Public/UserBU.quanta
Action 2019-12-20 05:43:02 Minutia Received cancel request
It there a way to list out the files that QRecall would replace when trying to restore a volume without performing the task? I accidentally may have deleted files from the command line (I won't write the dreaded unix command I issued here), and I just want to check the delta against my archive without actually performing the task initially to access what damage I may have done.

I've be trying to use launchctl commands to try stop QRecall from respawning all its processes to no avail. As fast as I kill the process, it starts it back up. I need to unmount a volume that the program keeps accessing. Killing the processes (ps aux | grep -I qrecall, then kill PID...) after trying halt the launcthd using

launchctl dumpstate | grep -i qrecall

which the the running daemons and agents

com.qrecall.monitor = {
path = /Users/zzzz/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.monitor.plist
program = /Applications/QRecall.app/Contents/Resources/QRecall Monitor.app/Contents/MacOS/QRecall Monitor
XPC_SERVICE_NAME => com.qrecall.monitor
com.qrecall.scheduler = {
path = /Users/xxxx/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.scheduler.plist
program = /Users/xxxx/Library/Application Support/QRecall/QRecallScheduler
XPC_SERVICE_NAME => com.qrecall.scheduler
creator = QRecallKickStar.304
1257 2 com.qrecall.scheduler
com.qrecall.scheduler = {
path = /Volumes/xxxx/Users/yyyyy/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.scheduler.plist
program = /Library/Application Support/QRecall/504/QRecallScheduler
XPC_SERVICE_NAME => com.qrecall.scheduler


and then using

sudo launchctl unload -F /Volumes/xxxx/Users/yyyyy/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.scheduler.plist
sudo launchctl unload -F /Users/zzzz/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.monitor.plist
sudo launchctl unload -F /Users/zzzz/Library/LaunchAgents/com.qrecall.monitor.plist

but it doesn't work. QRecall just starts up again!

Any ideas how to temporarily stop the program and all it's processes????????
I know that the archive used to be capped at 2TB, but that was back in 2009. What are the current limits. I seemed to have hit mine.
Also is there a way to divide up an archive (the two separate volumes that were backed up into it) into two separate archives without destroying the original one (since it contains important old info)?
