 What I did was I moved the *.log and *.old files to another directory and
ran mrtg on the conf file and the daily is starting to track again (
although I lost todays stuff...not a big deal)
>What I was wondering was,  when MRTG creates the the new week/month/year

.old files?  or are those files just used for the daily and then just added
to the weekly/monthly/yearly graphs?

take your old logs (not the .old files, those are just backups)
open it up in your editor of choice, and remove the top line.

then look at the second line. there is a number, then 4 columns.

the number is the "timestamp". when that timestamp is newer than "now" mrtg
will skip it. once "now" catches up to that date, it'll continue on normally.
