Hi @jonniewhite, welcome to the forum!
Thanks for the suggestion!
It seems like creating the temp folder if it doesn’t exist is a sensible thing to do - and might aid with people using RAM drives where the drive contents disappear after each reboot.
The only things I can think of are:
- the created temp folder would be owned by whatever process is running Duplicati so if you happen to change process owners but NOT the temp folder path you might have permissions issues
- if the Duplicati process doesn’t actually have rights to create the request folder obviously the error you got (or related ‘could not create temp folder’ error) would still happen
Both of the above are pretty edge-case scenarios, so unless somebody else has another reason NOT to do this I volunteer you to go ahead and code it. (j/k - unless you actually want to, which would totally be fine.)
