Backing up the .duplicacy directory

Is the .duplicacy directory backed up by duplicacy? If not, what are best practices for backing up those settings?

AFAIK it’s not being backed up intentionally, and the only thing that is worth backing up there is the filter list really.

As a workaround I keep filter list elsewhere (in the iCloud synced folder to be precise) and just symlink it into the .duplicacy/

One might add that there is stuff in there that you definitely don’t want to backup, especially the cache folder.


Thank you for the help.

Haha before reading this I was erring on the side of caution, and added an exclusion filter for the .duplicity directory! Should I assume this rule isn’t doing anything at all, either good or bad?

for .duplicity/ definitely 100% nothing!
