I would like some clarification with this scenario using the Duplicacy GUI. Let’s say I have an external hard drive as storage that already has one backup job setup daily, then I add new cloud storage with “copy” enabled with the external hard drive.
After this, I would run a daily “copy” command to keep the offsite cloud storage with the external hard drive to have an identical copy. Until here, everything looks good.
Let’s say that for a while I won’t have access to the external hard drive storage. Could I disable the external storage backup job, and set up a new backup job to be using the cloud storage?
Then when I have access again to the external hard drive, can I run a copy command the other way to get the new stuff I have in the offsite cloud storage, to the external hard drive storage and resume the normal backup job to the external hard drive, and disable the backup job that was going direct to the offsite cloud storage?
Another scenario, let’s say that I made a lot of changes to my repository, and I already have all the new changes in the cloud storage, but I currently have very slow Internet to download the changes from the offsite cloud storage to the external hardrive. I could run a direct backup job to the external hard drive, and when I do the copy command that won’t be duplicated, but I would have different revisions linked to different backup jobs, is that right?
