Hi all! Just started using Duplicacy and I’m really enjoying how snappy it is. Just a few quick questions, though!
Is there anything else I need to keep safe other than the password? In the event that my house burns down, and I lose all my devices/servers, could I start a restore to a brand new server with the password only? I’m backing up to Backblaze B2, by the way. Assume I know the account details, and the password I used while encrypting the backups. Is there some database I don’t know about or should I not worry?
How do I prune so that I keep a specific number of backups? Most prune configurations I saw while using Duplicacy were more centered around “if it’s older than x days then delete and keep one every y day.” I want to keep twenty backups (incremental) so that if I roll over to the 21st backup, the 1st backup is deleted.
How do I restore a specific file? Let’s say I accidentally deleted /path/to/repo/foo/bar. Would I run
duplicacy restore -r <revision_number> foo/barin
/path/to/repo? Would this work or do I have to download the entire backup? Does the restore command accept wildcards?
How often do I have to run checks? Does Duplicacy lose chunks often? In the unfortunate event that one of the chunks go missing, how screwed is my data?
I’ve looked through the documentation, and am still confused about the four on top. Any advice would be appreciated!
