'duplicacy backup' needs -pref-dir option

Otherwise it’s impossible to backup read-only directories (e.g. /Library/Application Support on OSX).

Duplicacy should not require a config file in the source directory to begin with, but that’s a different story…

There is a PR that implemented this feature: https://github.com/gilbertchen/duplicacy/pull/396

I’ll merge this PR tomorrow. You can try to build from this PR if you want.

Awesome, thank you!

Could someone clarify how this feature request here relates to this one:
