rsnapshot rotating incorrectly


I really hate to bring this problem to these forums, but the developers of snpashot don't offer real support to their script, only an inactive mailing list.

This question will only make sense if you you are using rsnapshot, so I'm hopeful its a popular enough script that some of you may have used it before.

According to the rsnapshot's guide in the howto under section 6 titled how it works, it states this.
Quote:
"When rsnapshot daily is run, it will rotate all the daily.X directories, then copy the contents of hourly.5 into daily.0."
Well it's not doing that on my end, it's moving not copying i believe because everytime i run snapshot daily. The last hourly snapshot disappears.

I looked in the source code and couldn't find where it was doing it. Anyone have this issue before?
