Good day, seeing odd behavior with pruning:

borg prune -v  --keep-daily=6 -p vault1 /vault/repo1
Keeping archive: vault1-2015-09-23-0900               Wed Sep 23 23:34:55
2015
Keeping archive: vault1-2015-09-21-1017               Tue Sep 22 00:09:54
2015
Keeping archive: vault1-2015-09-20-1136               Mon Sep 21 04:34:15
2015
Pruning archive: vault1-2015-09-22-1110               Wed Sep 23 01:57:36
2015

Since 9/22 was two days ago why are we pruning it?

Thank you,
Alex

Is that archive list complete?

Did you use --prefix=vault1- ?

Pruning depends on all the archive timestamps (that match the given
prefix OR all archives if you give none).

Yes, these are all the backups

I think the -p vault1 is the same as --prefix, at least as per documentation

That is what I assumed - but doing pruning on September 24 and it is
deleting an archive with the timestamp of September 23, this is what
confused me.

Thanks,
