Trouble pruning with duplicacy web

I’m having trouble pruning via Duplicacy Web. I have made daily revisions for over 6 months, and I’m able to do a dry run

duplicacy prune -d -keep 0:360 30:180 7:90

from .duplicacy-web/repositories/localhost/*, which correctly shows the revisions that should be pruned. But when I run a prune with the same parameters via the web interface, the log shows “No snapshot to delete”.


Duplicacy Web Edition 0.2.10 Beta is now available

I had this behavior to. You have to add “-ID” parametr with backup name, then it works

Thanks! That worked for me as well. It seems to me this should be an input field when setting up the prune, since it seems to be necessary in order for it to work.

While you can prune by ID, you would normally prune a storage with the -all option - unless, of course, you want different retention periods.
