No more backup and empty restore

Hello all,
After adding 6Go in a directory of my backup I ran a backup command through web-ui but it exited very quickly. I checked and it seems that the new files are not viewed. After some tests it seems that duplicacy doesn’t detect new files at all.
Here is the last log:

And if I go to restore, the file list is always empty???

Any command to check things. I’m a bit worried…


What do your filters look like?

Nothing special…


I think this is probably what you’re looking for. I still don’t understand the include/exclude filtering logic well enough to justify all of its nuances, but this should work based on a quick test I just did in a fresh repo (since I don’t adjust my filters often enough to be comfortable with them).


If you added these using the web GUI, I don’t think clicking on a folder and then clicking include actually creates the correct entries in the filters file to include the directory. I think it creates entries like the ones in your post, but that don’t do what you might expect.

You are right.
Incredible, I reinstall it so much time due to the migration from cli to web that I didn’t get it.
How is it possible that the use of the gui create a pattern that is not working.
I don’t feel trustful in duplicacy and it’s a concern for a backup app.

Thank you very much for your help.

I would personally consider this a bug.

FWIW the whole folder selection is on the roadmap to be overhauled in a way that is more user friendly.

@gchen Is it a bug to you? Thanks.

Yes, this is a bug (if you don’t add an include pattern). If all patterns are include patterns then anything not matching a pattern is automatically excluded. The added pattern for each selected directory should have been +dir/* instead of +dir/. I’ll fix this in the next release.
