Assuming that's not the case, I would try making a copy of your cache

right now my casual "garbage test tarsnap" cachedir is:

$ ls -l ~/.test-tarsnap/cache/
total 76
-rw-r--r--  1 td  td    103 May 13 12:26 cache
lrwxr-xr-x  1 td  td     64 May 13 12:26 cseq -> 5c10f4d39bc2508073a02cc8710821800f5f970d1255497f53d493e58dc399da
-rw-r--r--  1 td  td  72264 May 13 12:26 directory
-rw-r--r--  1 td  td      0 May 13 12:20 lockf

If I checked that in a day or two and found different dates and cseq (without
myself consciously making a new archive), that would be very weird.
The other possibility which comes to my mind is that MacOS might be deleting
the cache directory when you reboot.  You don't want to put it into /tmp/,
for example...
