I have recently set up a new backup. Not yet all files were backed up when I realized that I am unhappy with one of my mountpoints on the local computer. So I added the new mountpoint into /etc/fstab.
Soon, Duplicati complained that it couldn’t access the files of the former mountpoint. So: in the config, I removed the old mountpoint/folder, and added the new one. I assume that a part of the files from the old mountpoint were already transferred.
Will duplicati create duplicate files, or does it “understand” that the files are already (partially) in the remote destination? If not: how to clean up?
Thanks for your advice.
The easier way is to restart your backup, since it is a ‘new backup’. If you keep some files referenced by an not existing path AND an existing one, it will work, but when it’s restore time it will be more difficult. You don’t need difficulties when restoring, you need everything to be the simpler possible.
