Backup OK, 1st Restore failed

I created a 100 Gig backup. Restore to some drive N. It’s a mounted Truecrypt volume. User has full access. Why did Restore fail? Why is it even interested in that recycle bin folder? Thx.

Have you tried running Duplicacy as administrator?

Webgui was running under a user who is administrator on the whole drive N.
But I could enter n:$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-2172182979-122818957-3614598407-1004, e.g. via Totalcommander, only if I started it via Rightclick->“As Admin”.
But I wonder what is Duplicacy doing there? I asked him to put his restore into N:\ - not parse all folders in N:\

BTW, the forum software eats the backslash in N : \ $Recycle…

This isn’t really an issue with Duplicacy I don’t think - restoring system files (which is basically what the Recycle Bin is) directly on-top probably isn’t a good idea. I don’t know of any backup software that would let you restore a Windows User profile for example (ntuser.dat etc.) while in use.

Try restore to a different location?

Nono, the recycle bin is somewhere near the target of the restore. I pointed restore to n:\ I see no reason why recycle bin folders on the target should interest Duplicacy in any way…
There were just 3 regular folders in the backup.

Ah OK that makes sense. Duplicacy is probably trying to get a complete state of the directory in order to do in-place restore and it’s not able to see the Recycle Bin properly (without admin?). But hmm that’s only giving a warning - the actual error is with mkdir, which suggests it doesn’t have permissions(?).

I can only suggest restore to a completely empty but existing directory like N:\restore.
