I have a client repository with an archive/ directory. If I let the assistant sync the repos or initiate a manual git annex sync --content the contents of the archive directory is filled up.

I can't see why this happens. The repo is a client repo with the standard preferred contents and no required contents onfig. One of the files that is wanted has 2 copies in backup repositories (one is trusted and one is reachable and semitrusted). git annex numcopies is 2 for one of these files. The repos were checked by git annex fsck and synced.

I'm not sure what to look for or how to debug this kind of situation. Any ideas?
