Hi, I am trying to transfer my Duplicacy data chunks from Onedrive to Backblaze B2. I am using Multcloud. So far I did run on some questions as written below:
.duplicacy folder after the move inside B2 shows like “002eduplicacy - modify”. Hex 002e is ‘.’ (period). Seems this dot is not handled well and the folder is renamed. Will this affect Duplicacy behavior when pointing to B2? Is there a way to fix this?
If some chunks on B2 are missing will Duplicacy able to avoid a full upload? Can it restart from a partial chunk set? Mulcloud transfer does not seem very trusty but saved a lot of time.
You’re asking for trouble. Duplicacy has a copy operation especially designed for this which has multithreading capabilities.
And there’s the first problem!
//end of rant
Leaving my bad jokes aside: i really believe you should use duplicacy to copy the chunks from one place to the other. Also, if Multcloud can’t even handle a . in a folder’s name I really wouldn’t trust it to reliably copy my existing chunks, even if it said “all chunks were copied successfully”.
In short lines, what needs to be done using the copy command is
add a new storage named BackblazeStorage and make it compatible with the existing OneDriveStorage (Add command details):
Thanks guys for the Rclone tip. I will try it as soon I get a VM up.
But for the “regular” way for doing that, I am having a basic issue, please see the output below:
henrique@homeserver1:/mnt/sdc1/henrique$ /opt/duplicacy/duplicacy_linux_x64_2.1.2 -d add -copy onedrive1 -bit-identical backblaze1 henrique1 b2://Home-Duplicacy-Backup
Repository set to /mnt/sdc1/henrique
Reading the environment variable DUPLICACY_BACKBLAZE1_B2_ID
Reading the environment variable DUPLICACY_BACKBLAZE1_B2_KEY URL request ‘POST https://api.backblazeb2.com/b2api/v1/b2_authorize_account’ returned status code 401 Failed to load the Backblaze B2 storage at b2://Home-Duplicacy-Backup: Authorization failure
The env vars are correct as far I checked. What could be the reason?
As a side note I tried to acess the URL directly. It asks for a username/password. I tried several combinations of Acct Id, e-mail as user and the Application Key or my B2 password. None worked. I get the following when cancelling the browser based popup credential.
