Log of file operations/changes of incremental backups

Is there any way for Duplicati to properly report the file operations it has done in an incremental backup (in a clean way)? After running a backup, I would simply like to have a list of the following:

  1. New files (since the last backup)
  2. Changed files
  3. Removed files
  4. Warnings
  5. Errors

I have found the Duplicati logs lacking in such (for example compared to RClone), but perhaps there is some combination of log level and log filter that achieves this sufficiently.

I’d really appreciate some help with this.

I think what you’re looking for is the COMPARE command. You can run it from the GUI or command line.

Here’s a discussion thread from last year:

I know I’ve seen some users add this command to a post-backup script so they’d get an email of all new/changed/deleted files.

This is great stuff, thank you! I’ll dive right into it. I see that the topic you refer to eventually ends up being a feature request for exactly what I hope will eventually be included. I hope that’ll find its way into the UI some day :crossed_fingers:
