I’m a new user of duplicacy-web (running it in a docker container on my NAS) and I have a few questions to make sure that I’m getting started on the right footing:
How should I group my storage (with a given cloud provider)? Say I use Google Drive. Should I backup everything (even from multiple devices) into the same storage on Google Drive? When would it make sense to have separate storages, say in different directories of Google Drive?
Is it possible to rename the backup id (perhaps with the cli version)? Say I backup my Lenovo laptop and use the backup id “Lenovo laptop” for that? Then I switch to a new laptop, say an HP, transfer all my file and I want to rename the backup id to “HP laptop”, since now I’m backing up from the new laptop. Is that possible? Or would I just create a new backup id, backup into the same storage and deduplication would take care of the rest?
If I only have certain subdirectories of my file tree that I want to backup, do I need to use (or should I use) separate backup ids or can/should I use one backup ids and use filters?
Example: Let’s take the (partial) tree:
If I want to backup “Personal” (and its subfolders) and “Media” and its subfolders, should/can I use separate backup ids?
Thanks in advance for any help.
