Google drive rclone mount as a source (ubuntu)


Whenever I start the backup process, it crashes after few dozens of seconds.
My backup destination is on the same gdrive account, but I do don’t think it matters.
Did anyone try that?
Where could I see the log to find out what actually goes wrong?


Are you using the GUI? In that case there should be a crashlog.txt file in %APPDATA%Duplicati (Windows) or ~/.config/Duplicati (Linux/macOS).

If you are using the commandline, try adding --verbose --debug-output to see if it hints at where it crashes.

I am using GUI
is there a way to easily generate (or read somewhere) the command line the GUI is creating?
I could use that

Yes! Click the backup name, then choose the “Export…” link under it, and pick “Export as commandline”, then click “Export” and you will see it.

Thank you soo much.
This was it. At the end I only had to rebuilt the database.
