RECOMMENDED ACTIONS
Status: Critical 

Recommended: An issue has been found with the BART 2.0 and 2.1 incremental backup feature and a tool to identify whether your backups are experiencing this problem is now available.
 
As a reminder about the current issue: Under an isolated circumstance, if the VACUUM command has been executed between the full backup and incremental backup(s), incremental backup(s) have been found to have data corruption.
