Does duplicati create snapshot from file system?

Hi, I’m trying to use Duplicati as the backup server for my MongoDb database, According to this, MongoDb can be backed up by saving its files but it should use the filesystem snapshots.

Is Duplicati suitable for this kind of backups? Does it use file system snapshots?


Yes, you can have Duplicati use filesystem snapshots. Check the --snapshot-policy option.

For this to work on Windows you will need to make sure Duplicati is running with elevated administrative rights. For it to work on Linux you need to be using LVM.

And please note the other requirement, and be sure to test.

To ensure that the snapshot is logically consistent, you must have journaling enabled within MongoDB.
