Continuing the discussion from Change order of files backing up:
This is an interesting point and I’m starting this new topic to provide a space to discuss this recommendation further, the pros and cons, basically.
So when you say
does this mean that if I have 20 video files (say: 1GB each) on my Dropbox so that they are synced to two computers and both computers are backed up to the same storage, duplicacy will upload 20 GB of media file chunks from one machine and another 20 GB of media file chunks from the other?
This is not how I understood duplicacy, but, I may well be wrong.
So the “versioning not required” argument seems to weigh heavier. And I would add my suspicion that there isn’t much compression to be achieved on most mefja files as they tend to be already heavily compressed.
Another argument for rclone might be that it is very easy to remove movies that you don’t want any more in order to free up storage space. In duplicacy that is basically impossible.
