I’m testing 2.1.0 Beta 6. Today I tried my first restore operation.
Suggestion: The GUI does not seem to offer the ability to restore a backup to a different folder on my PC. I think such a feature would be very useful.
Comments: Without the ability to restore to a different folder, I decided to test the restore function by deleting just a few folders and files from the source folder (the repository) on my PC and then running an all-files restore. I was pleased to find that Duplicacy identified and restored only those files and folders that were missing. The whole operation took less than a minute. Good! It would be nice, I think, if an ending dialog appeared that said something like, for example, “Restored 4 folders and 10 files.”
I tested again, this time on a different repository with no changed files. The restore process completed very quickly as expected. But it just ended without any displayed result. It would be nice if there were a dialog saying, for example, “No files found to restore,” or similar.
On the other hand, as I continue to use Duplicacy I may get used to its minimalist user interactions.
