Consistent failure of one backup set (log enclosed)

I’m new to duplicacy (using the web GUI) and on one of my backup sets it’s consistently failing (tried 4 times). Here’s the log. Since I’m new to duplicacy, this set has never had a successful finish yet.
Any advice on how to troubleshoot?

I’m sad to see this since I just switched to wasabi from B2, but it looks like wasabi is sending back a 503 error code.

Which wasabi region are you using? I have daily backups to the us-west-1 region and haven’t had any failed backups so far.


However, I have three other backup sets that completed successfully so it’s weird how just this one is having problems.

Unless I’m reading the log incorrectly, it would probably be a good idea to contact wasabi support and send them the log output since it seems to have some wasabi-specific troubleshooting info.

Thanks, I’ve reached out to Wasabi support to see if they can help.

I’ve been pondering a switch to B2… does one work better than the other with Duplicacy in general?

Last year I migrated from Wasabi to B2. I had recurring problems with Wasabi when dealing with buckets. Their support is also terribly slow.

With B2 everything is 110% perfect, for more than 6 months now.

I generally had a good experience with B2 as well even before I migrated away from it. I haven’t noticed any functional issues with either when using Duplicacy – at least not yet.

The main reason I switched from B2 to Wasabi was the free egress, better performance, and not having to worry about API calls. The psychological cost of knowing that my data is locked behind a paywall with B2 was annoying and costly for periodic backup integrity checking and replication elsewhere; but that might not be a factor for others.

@joe did it always fail at the same chunk?

I just checked and it was different chunks each time.

It started working successfully though. I’ve engaged Wasabi support but since it’s working they’re having difficulty with helping. No worries, several backups have completed successfully!

@gchen if I buy a GUI license, can I use it for the web version? My “trial” of the web version is about to expire. Thx!

@joe yes you can activate the GUI license in the web version.
