I’m backing up from a variety of platforms to a Linux box onto an encrypted drive. I’m able to restore files through the web interface from the source computer but in a disaster situation I would, presumably, only have access to the backup drive and not the source. I was trying to experiment to restore locally on the Linux box with the CLI pointed at the location of the backup, but whatever command I try to run prompts for the encryption password and then just sits there for what appears to be an indefinite amount of time. I can’t tell if it’s actually making progress since there is nothing displayed, even with the --verbose option, although CPU usage is high so perhaps it is actually processing. Does it take hours to get a result back? Is there any way to see progress?
For example, I tried this command:
duplicati-cli find file:///media/veracrypt1/carbon '*.txt'
In an attempt to get a list of text files in my backup. I was then prompted for the encryption password which I entered, and nothing more appears to have happened. I also tried a ‘compare’ command with the same result. Am I missing something?
