I have found the problem (I think). Dirvish make a backup of a remote box of a 
directory home. Four days ago there was a problem with a hard disk and the 
home directory was unavailable during some time. 

During this time dirvish was executed and connected to the remote machine and 
make a backup of the home directory. However, that directory was empty.

The next time that dirvish was executed, dirvish found the home directory full 
and it compared with the previous backup (that was empty), so make a copy 
again thinking that there were new files. This made that I had two copies of 
the almost the same information.

So, I understand that dirvish compares with the copy of the previous day, no? 
Then, if I delete the empty backups, dirvish will make the copy compared with 
the last full backup?
