  • Hi, Stewart Smith, i used xtrabackup for some time, but i found a limitation about it.
    when i added or deleted a table , i can’t do a increment backup , could only do a full backup;
    when i dropped or added a index on a table , deleted or added one or some fileds on a table , couldn’t do a full backup also. Is this a bug ?
