The latest release of LBackup has no configuration option available to  
enabling the reporting of which files have been copied. However, such  
an option would be a worth while addition.

There are already plans to include this feature in the next release of  
LBackup. The feature will most likely be implemented using rsync's "-- 
log-file" option.

If you are interested in joining the LBackup discussion mailing list,  
it would be great to further discuss your requirements, so that this  
feature will actually do what you require. In addition, if you join  
the LBackup announce list then you will gain access to the LBackup  
beta release notifications.

Below is a list of some rsync options which may do what you require.

In the mean time you could manually edit the backup script and add an  
option such as "--itemize-changes". If you would like assistance with  
patching your copy then please let me know.

Hope this helps.
