I own an MSP company and we are searching for a backup program to backup our clients to Backblaze B2. We have been testing Duplicati and find it works fine with B2. We were testing CloudBerry Backup and liked it, though its a bit pricey. While we don’t mind doing a donation for Duplicati if we decide to use it, we are planning to use it for roughly 40 users. Could we get a version that does not have the Donate button in the GUI for a lump sum payment as this would be on all clients machines?
The jest of it is that looking inside the B2 bucket, we see Duplicati uploading the backup as configured, however, its all a jumbled mess with a bunch of zip files. Is there anyway to configure Duplicati to upload in a file/folder manner? Say if we backup test.pdf we need to see in the bucket test.pdf instead of duplicati-b6eb5b1b9a4654687809b6d6aedfdddea.dblock.zip
This is how Cloudberry Backup does it. That way if a client needs the test.pdf file OR the whole folder, we can drill down from the bucket to said file or folder and only download it.
You see my point? Is it that we missed some setting during the backup configuration?
Another thing. Has anyone tried a restore using Duplicati? We know it works, but what about if a machine dies and we have to replace it? We would obviously need to reinstall Duplicati and connect it back to the bucket, but would this work to restore files on a new machine?
