This file is created only on Solaris to calculate the total size needed for the backup. It should contain the output of ls -lR of each backup target. If the file is still there, it means the backup script was improperly terminated (e.g. kill -9, reboot, etc.). This could also explain why a log was not created.

thanks, I think something happend. " backup_lock" also there. so is it safe to remove both files before next backup job?
