I am coming from a joyful painful love-hate relationship with Duplicati. Lot’s of speed and amount of time related reasons to look for something else. At least for the huge (TByte || many files) backups.
My question is about backup organisation.
I want to backup music (a few folders), documents (folders spread all over the place), pictures (some folders)… So in Duplicati I created a backup set and defined which folders are part of it. Let’s say they all go to Google Drive and I want to have the new “backup set” in distinct folders on GDrive, in order to be able to delete them on Google side.
What would I do in Duplicacy? Create 3 storages, “music”, “documents” and “pictures”? For every folder I define one backup and assign it to the related storage? That would mean maaaany backup definitions. What is the concept of “ID” in the backups? Is it supposed to be a descriptive name?
Looks a bit to me like Duplicacy is targeted to backup just a few, top level folders and do the filtering… well, by filtering or Regex filtering (haven’t looked at it yet).
I am using the web UI as a start, later I will do cmd scripting (Windows here). So scripting + windows inbuilt cron is the way to go here?
Thx guys! Best regards
