rsnapshot cache

I've been using rsnapshot to keep backups of many file that are often changed on a linux Mint system.

Mostly it works fine but lately I've had problems.

The users are using a multi user CAD CAM file sharing system and recently their files have been lost.

Rsnapshot to the rescue. Normally it stores files in /home/rsnapshot/<directory heirarchy>
but lately I have found the lost files are not in that directory but rather I am locating them in /var/cache/rsnapshot/dailyetc/blah

Does anyone know what is going on here. Rsnapshot is configured to store in /home/rsnapshot.

What is this cache file?
