Subfolders empty after restoration


I am trying to restore some files I stored on Blackblaze. I have downloaded everything and setup duplicacy on my new computer. When I am doing the process of restoring, I picked the latest revision, and when I explore it on the GUI I can see that all folders have their actual content. However, after restoring if I explore the files and folders, only the files that were at the root of the main folder have been restored. If I try to open any folder it will be empty (also the restoration of the 200Gb took a split second).

Could you help me? I’m freaking out a bit that my data has been lost


Empty or not accessible? Permissions? What we restore filter?

They are empty, I can open them but there’s nothing inside.

I didn’t set any permissions, options or filters, I only filled the mandatory fields of the GUI.

I use MacOS btw

Can you post restore log?

Here are the latest one, there seem to be a permissions issue:

Add -ignore-owner flag to your restore command.

It’s duplicacy btw, duplicati is entirely different piece of software.

It seems to be working, thanks! I will report back later.

I actually tried both before picking Duplicacy, and I probably forgot to rename the folder ahah
