A first-time user, I installed the latest Duplicati Canary, created a backup job, ran the backup, then ran a restore. The restore seemed to work fine because I got the file I expected and was able to open it, but the logs show a warning that I assume is a programming bug that ought to be fixed:
Failed to apply metadata to file: “E:”, message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. => Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
It’s possible that the problem is failing to apply NTFS permissions. I noticed that I had to give myself permissions on the file before I was able to open it.
Also strange is that the warning says the file is just “E:”. I believe it should say “E:\my file name.pdf”.
Edit: I noticed that this forum says to post bugs to the GitHub page, so I did that too: https://github.com/duplicati/duplicati/issues/3036
