Error: Failed to list the revisions of the snapshot



I changed the exclusion parameters of a storage (filters file) and decided to delete all previous backups. So I deleted the chunks and snapshots folders from the storage, to restart the “clean” backup. I didn’t delete the config file.

To my surprise, when I tried to perform the backup, I received the error:

TRACE SNAPSHOT_LIST_REVISIONS Listing revisions for snapshot [rep name]
ERROR SNAPSHOT_LIST Failed to list the revisions of the snapshot [rep name]: mkdir [storage]/snapshots/[rep name]: The system cannot find the path specified.

Should not Duplicacy have started the backup as if it were the first one?


Update: I just created the two empty folders (chunks and snapshots) in the storage and the backup worked … (!)

I still think that Duplicacy itself should do that.
