Duplicacy Web Edition 0.2.10 Beta is now available



If you click Don't save does it keep showing the dialog next time? Any other options from the pull down menu?

localhost-* are for manually run backups. You’ll see activities on those rows after you start running the backups directory from the Backups page.

If there is a good solution that doesn’t interfere with regular schedules, I’ll implement it.


I’m not sure if this has been asked, but when I try to restore a backup from a storage with multiple id’s I get “Failed to list files: Error: Network Error” and duplicacy shuts down. It works fine restoring from the command line.


For Linux you can just run the downloaded executables. No installation is required.

If you want to run it as a service (to make it start automatically on startup) – that depends on the Linux distribution, but I think the instructions on this page should work most of the times: How to run a Linux Program on Startup – Tim Leland


I’ve fixed all these in my code base.


I have some new information about the Storages page. Last night, I installed the Web Edition on one of my other computers. The Storages page worked fine until I ran the first check on my storage. After I did that, I am having the same problem. On that computer I used Edge, since that is the browser that happened to pop up when I opened Duplicacy.


If I click don’t save its keep showing next time, I have to select “Never Save”
(but then Firefox stops ask to save password for all websites (on all ports) )
It’s really not important, just for information.


Can you check the log ~/.duplicacy-web/logs/duplicacy-web.log to see if there is any error message?


Can’t see any error messages. Here’s the log output when I try to list files.

I have this version set up with storage on remote server via sftp , and seems to be working well so far! A few pieces of feedback:

  1. Under “Schedules”, if I create a new job block, add a couple of jobs, then immediately remove those jobs so that the job block is once again empty, I am unable to delete the job block (the X is greyed out).
  2. The “restore” function is very hard to find…all I see is a small icon in the upper right of the “Storages” tab.


I have the same issue. As a workaround i setup a ssh tunnel on my client machine

ssh -l 8888: “your-server-address”

then point your browser to and use the webinterface to listen to as leerspace suggested.


@rrovetti I was tricked by that delete button too:) That delete buton is only for jobs. If you want delete block, you have to click on “clock” schedule button and “delete schedule”.


Hi all,

  1. I am agree with “Restore to” but is absolutely necessary a check box with “Restore to the same location” and the ability to overwrite the restored file or folder.
    Now if I set to “Restore to” the same folder where the file is, it creates a new folder with the same name inside and there restore the file. What does the “Options” field in this case if I cannot set “-overwrite” .

  2. We should be able to select more files to restore from a folder, now it is possible to select only one.

Thank you.

@simon @jnapoli can you try this version: https://acrosync.com/duplicacy-web/duplicacy_web_installer_win64_0.2.2.exe?

This version will produce more information in the log to help debug the issues you encountered.


I’m not sure if it’s a regression in 0.2.2 or a windows issue (since I haven’t tested 0.2.1 on windows), but clicking on the Parallel and Options columns on the Schedules page in this version doesn’t do anything. No errors are logged to the console and a browser navigation to the schedules page happens, but the two columns do not function (i.e., parallel toggle doesn’t change or show confirmation, and the options window doesn’t open).


Yes, this is a new bug caused by the cursor style fix. Please test 0.2.1 only at this time as 0.2.2 was a temporary release for debugging only.


I think I found not ideal behavior.
If I rename source backup folder and run backup schedule, “Status” is still green “Completed”
Even if in backup log is:

WARN LIST_FAILURE Failed to list subdirectory: open C:\Folder: The system cannot find the file specified.
WARN SKIP_DIRECTORY Subdirectory cannot be listed
BACKUP_STATS Files: 0 total, 0 bytes; 0 new, 0 bytes
Running script C:\Users\user.duplicacy-web\repositories\localhost\5.duplicacy\scripts/post-backup.bat

And post-backup script is started.

Expected behavior is that backup is maybe “Failed” for backup job - like for example when backup destination is not accessible.


Here’s the debug log:

Good news is that duplicacy is not crashing any longer :slight_smile:


I did a clean install of 0.2.2 on one of my other computers. Attached are the logs from before and after I ran a check. If there’s something specific you’re looking for, let me know. I should also mention that with this version, Duplicacy is acting as if I haven’t run a check yet. On the Dashboard, it says “Some may not been checked recently.” And on the Storages page, it says “Not checked in last 3 days .” I ran the check function twice. I’m not sure if this is was expected to happen or not. Later tonight I will install 0.2.2 on one of my computers that has this issue and upload the log from that.

@simon this error was caused by a path being both a directory and a file. If you run this version https://acrosync.com/duplicacy-web/duplicacy_web_installer_win64_0.2.3.exe it will print out the path in question to the log.
