thanks for your kind and detailed reply, it makes a lot of sense.

I'm playing with XSIBackup-Free before purchasing a license for the Pro version.
During my tests, I'm using as destination an external USB disk mounted to a Linux host, and I use ssh for the remote destination host.

I ran into a problem when I tried to repair a backup that has been interrupted by Ctrl-C.
A subsequent backup job printed the message:

2022-03-17T06:32:09 | Error code 4178 at file common.c, line 4178 | Error description:
no .blocklog file at '/media/usbExternalVmBackup/ESXi_backup/data/.blocklog'
run ./xsibackup --repair '/media/usbExternalVmBackup/ESXi_backup'

So I opened an ssh session on the remote destination host and ran:

root@ubuntu-vm-esxi:/media/usbExternalVmBackup/ESXi_backup# xsibackup --repair /media/usbExternalVmBackup/ESXi_backup

And I got the following error:
Sorting progress  0%sort: option requires an argument -- 'T'
Try 'sort --help' for more information.

Is this a known bug?
Thanks for your help,
Kind regards,
