duplicacy diff [command options] [<file>]


-id <snapshot id>

You can specify a different snapshot id rather than the default snapshot id.

-r <revision> [+]

If only one revision is given by -r, the right hand side of the comparison will be the on-disk file.


The -hash option can then instruct this command to compute the hash of the file.

-storage <storage name>

You can use the -storage option to select a different storage other than the default one.


The file must be specified with a path relative to the repository.
