I disagree. Of course there is.
Using a tool like rsync - which doesn’t understand the underlying Vertical Backup/Duplicacy storage - allows you to do only one thing; make a 1:1 mirrored copy.
Duplicacy copy on the other hand, understands which chunks belong to which snapshots. You can copy all or a subset (revisions) of a storage. OP stated:
Unless OP has two separate storages - one for the dailies and one for the weeklies (which is rather inefficient use of space) - then Duplicacy copy absolutely is the tool to use here, not rsync.
Granted, Duplicacy’s copy command doesn’t yet support tags (which I proposed here, and should be simple to implement) but you can work around it with a script.
In my use case, I want to copy 1 VM (Exchange Server) daily and the rest weekly, partly due to restricted bandwidth.
Yes, they must be copy-compatible. But the master passwords for each storage can be different. I’ve tried it, it works.
