Duplicacy copy confusion/question

Hi great tool!

I am backing up files from my computer to a local SFTP server and would like to backup to cloud storage is well.

My ideal would be that I backup to SFTP server and then the server copies to the cloud, is this possible?

Do I understand correctly; using -copy during add cloud storage, my computer will download chunks from the SFTP server and then upload to cloud?


That is right. But you can also run the copy command from the SFTP server by creating a dummy repository first:

# on your SFTP server
mkdir -p /path/to/dummy/repository
cd /path/to/dummy/repository
duplicacy init dummy /path/to/storage
duplicacy add cloud dummy cloud_storage_url
duplicacy copy -from default -to cloud
