Backing up the .duplicacy directory

duplicacy-folder

#1

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


#2

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?


#7

for .duplicity/ definitely 100% nothing!
