I checked all my cron jobs and I could not find anything that would update ctime the files, especially all the files on the system. One of the system that is having problem is not even backed up by Veritas Netbackup (the bacula server). I started seeing this problem when I upgraded the server to 2.4.0, all the clients (except fd on bacula server) are at 2.2.8.
