How recently was it modified? Possibly Box Backup isn't running any more, 
or is configured not to back up files for a long time after they change? 
Please post your bbackupd.conf file.

The bad messages are, but broken backups most definitely are not.

I'd be happy to try to help you fix this. First let's see your config, 
stat /etc/genkernel.conf and list both versions of /etc/genkernel.conf on 
the server using bbackupquery.

Cheers, Chris.
