Scripts and utilities index



Since there are multiple use cases for Duplicacy on multiple operating systems, some users have also created various automation scripts and other utilities such as ignore file templates (filters file). Here is a list of them:

Windows only

  • duplicacy-script contributed by @mattjm
    • Getting Started guide for Windows with brief explanations of command line options, basic Powershell script for local and remote backups, and a filter file specifically targeted for Windows user profiles.

Linux only

  • duplicacy-scripts (Note the plural) contributed by @mfeit_duplicacy

    • Runs Duplicacy on a schedule, maintains the backups (pruning, etc.) and has a self-contained restore utility.
  • FreeNAS backup script utilising ZFS snapshots:

    • Running the script is as easy as ./ /mnt/tank/
    • Mentioned in Issue #370
