Will the web version import backup jobs and settings from the GUI version?
I’m wondering this too - the answer seems to be no. On the couple of machines I’ve tried it on I’ve had to reselect all the backup details which isn’t a disaster but just a little bit of a pain!
Is there any documentation or a post that describes how to manually switch over from the GUI version to the web version? I’m just a bit worried about messing things up and screwing up my existing backups.
Honestly, the way Duplicacy is designed, you’d find it hard to mess things up - so long as you don’t manually tinker with the storage files, you’ll be fine…
When adding the storage, point it to the same URL - it should tell you that it’s already initialized and to put the password.
When adding repositories (Backup tab) - if you’re just doing a straight migration and want to take off from where you left, just select the same IDs from the pull-down, for each respective repository directory.
What about things like excluded files/folders?
Obviously if you do have excludes, it’s easiest just re-add them manually and directly in the GUI. And replicate all your schedules. You won’t screw up existing backups.
Easiest would be if the program imported backup jobs, settings, and schedules from its earlier version. But I guess that’s too much to ask.
Yeah that’s true, but unfortunately we don’t have that. There are too many changed things between the 2 versions.
Hey thanks for the suggestion Droolio. I gave i a try as you’ve suggested. First scheduled backup is due to run in an hour so will see how it goes.
I see a few improvements as compared to the GUI, which is nice, but also a few puzzling things (e.g. how to manually run a “check” operation, whether prune and check operations should be checked to run concurrently with backup when in the same schedule, etc.). Also managed to freeze it completely when I was trying to set up e-mail notices.
Thanks again. Fingers crossed.
