Delete Database from Shell/CommandLine

Is it possible to delete the database of a backup job from the Shell/CommandLine?


Maybe I’m missing something, but why not just delete the file using a standard shell command?

After the database is deleted, manual intervention is usually required for backups to proceed. Only time it isn’t is when the back-end does not contains any Duplicati backup files. In that situation - no local database and no back-end files - it will behave as if it’s running the initial backup.

If the back-end is not empty you’ll need to trigger the recreation step from the GUI.

Thanks that worked for me
