I have now Duplicacy working well after a few months (much more stable since 1.2.1 WE using the COPY command). Set up is:
- Local backup to USB drive
- Copy command to copy local backup to B2 Bucket (entire local backup goes to one bucket)
Now I want to Prune my backups and I just want to make I don’t screw things up. I have read the forums online and have made sure the B2 bucket lifecycle options are correct (keep all versions) but I am not sure against which backup I need to run prune, the discussion on -all option etc. Do I need for example to run prune on both the local storage and the B2 bucket or will the B2 bucket shrink automatically if I prune the local storage because I use the COPY command. I just don’t quite get the interaction between COPY and PRUNE and want to be on the safe side.
How would I implement the following:
duplicacy prune -keep 0:360 -keep 30:180 -keep 7:30 -keep 1:7
Second question. I used to run duplicati and this had an export configuration function which mean in case of disaster (OS drive failure) I could get duplicati running on a second machine, import my backup configuration and run a restore (well, the restore part was the part which took for ever but still the theory was good). Can I achieve something like this in Duplicacy or should I run Duplicati and save all my Docker volumes of Duplicacy so I can restore them back to my server in case the server OS goes down.
Hope my questions are clear. Thanks for the help.
