Long story short, I have about 5TB of mostly media that I want to backup to Azure Blob storage. My problem is I made two attempts with Duplicati so far and both ended up getting the ‘Detected non-empty blocksets with no associated blocks!’ error where I had to start over (repair never worked).
The first wasn’t a huge deal, I was only about 200GB in, but the last one was quite frustrating as I only had 1TB left.
I have 460down/20up cable internet, so I’ve been using Speedify VPN in conjunction with a couple LTE connections to boost my upload. It helped me immensly, I was averaging about 60Mbit/s upload. However, since the backup job can’t truely be paused, it seems to break and cause the ‘Detected non-empty blocksets with no associated blocks!’ error if I lost connectivity. For that reason, speedify was a huge benefit, since if one connection broke, the other one was fine. However, I had some incredibly bad luck where I was running off only my cable connection and my modem literally locked up, where I had to power cycle it. BOOM ‘Detected non-empty blocksets with no associated blocks!’
Long story short, I’ve been playing with Duplicacy and QBackup, and so far Qbackup seems to be able to handle start/stop very well, where knock on wood, no errors. My issue is that I really sold myself on Duplicati, where even though jobs couldn’t be paused, I was hoping that once I had my first backup finished, I wouldn’t have any problems anymore going forward since future jobs wont take days.
Am I doing something wrong? Should I just stick with qbackup, or should there be a reason to give duplicati another shot?
Thanks in advance!
