	I have noticed a strange occurrence when box backup does a "compare
-aq" on a backup store. Consistently the compare generates the following
messages repeatedly.

Local file '/BACKUPS/OFFSITE/PUBLIC/SERVER/E for 2005.Xls' has different
contents to store file '/BACKUPS-OFFSITE/PUBLIC/SERVER/E for 2005.Xls'.

This message is repeated about 60 times for various Microsoft Excel =
files in
different locations. Is it possible that there is a problem with the =
option that could be causing incorrect checksums to be generated??? As =
it is
very strange that only .xls files are being detected as having problems
(conflict with the macro's)????=20
Even when there are other files that are present in the same locations =
do not suffer from the same problems.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you
