dump and restore

i make a script in order to realise a partition save every morning.

I use the unix command "dump" and "restore"
But I have a problem :

just after a reboot, I ve made a :

1_ dump -0uf file.dump /home
2_ restore -if file.dump

The file.dump is correct : I find exactly in the dump the
files which are in /home

Then, I ve made some changes in my /home directory
(put a new directory for exemple :
3_ mkdir /home/toto

I ve made an incremental dump :
4_ dump -1uf file2.dump /home

but, in the file2.dump, /home/toto isn't here !!!!

now, if I reboot and I make my dump (step "4"),
toto is in file2.dump

I think that there is a synchronization problem between my disk and my buffer cache

I ve tried to make several "sync" before to make the dump ....
without success

I don t know what to do now ...

Thanks ...
