Can I export backup jobs from the command line?


#1

If my computer dies a catastrophic death, I’ll need the exported jobs to recover my data. I’d like a way to automatically export all my jobs via a cron script. Can this be done? How?

https://github.com/Pectojin/duplicati-client#export-backups is a possible avenue using a third-party client. For questions or thanks, please see @Pectojin. It looks to me like before you can run export, you might need to find the backup ID numbers, perhaps with duc list backups, then use the result to drive a loop of exports.

You don’t absolutely need exported jobs to recover your data, but they help for restore and setting up again, and.they might save you, if you didn’t keep records about must-have settings such as encryption passwords:
