I’ve been using CrashPlan for a number of years to backup to a mates computer for a number of years and his computer to mine. Following the recent Crashplan announcements, I looked for an alternative and came across Duplicati. I’ve been using it for a few months and find it to be excellent albeit not quite as easy to setup but once there it seems very robust.
One thing I really miss since changing to Duplicati is easy to read backup reports. With Crashplan I used to get a simple weekly summary email detailing how much was in the backup source in GB, how many files and whether the backups had been successful. I do have backup emails configured but they are not the easiest in the world to read and my friend who I back up for is not hugely computer literate. Is there any way via the CLI or similar to generate say a weekly summary email as to whether the backups have been successful for a given week?
I would see quite a few users moving over from CrashPlan to Duplicati and think this would be a really good feature or workaround to include.
