This is a feature request.
The following environment applies:
- Duplicati installed on a Windows machine, successfully backs up to AWS S3 buckets, which includes user data synced from Google Drive Cloud to the local machine, via Google Backup & Sync.
- Google Backup & Sync downloads non-Google formats as discrete files, but Google Docs themselves are soley symbolic links (in the Windows environment, they are hyperlinks which launch the default browser and open the file in the browser).
Apps like Spanning save the data from Google Drive Cloud to Spanning’s own servers.
Apps like BackupGoo convert Google doc content to an OpenOffice format for apps, like Duplicati, to backup.
At present, Duplicati has loads of places to which to save backup data, but only backs up data on the machine on which it is installed.
Is there merit for Duplicati to include functionality similar to both BackupGoo and Spanning, for Duplicati to OAUTH into the user’s Google Drive and back the data up from Google Drive Cloud to the user’s preferred backend? (Conversion to OpenOffice format shouldn’t be necessary; syncing converted data down to the local machine solely to upload it as a backup shouldn’t be necessary).
