I’m looking for alternatives for CrushPlan and I would like to backup all the users on my systems (most MacOS). The Duplicacy GUI seems to runs as my uid (from my account), thus it can’t read others directories. I know for many backup programs, their GUI is separate from the backup engine. This allows for them to run when not logged in and as root.
I could run CLI as root and set up a periodic script, but then why use the GUI?
