Apologies for the newbie question (I was also using crashplan). I am trying to setup Dropbox as the destination. In the Duplicati screen I have selected Dropbox.
I ASSUME I do not need Dropbox installed, I simply need to be able to get the path on server (URL of the backup folder), but HOW DO I DO THIS? When I just look at the folder with Dropbox web it has a URL of that says …home…
Clearly that’s a folder for everybody in the globe, how can I find out what ‘home’ should be?
OR is it actually the path on the server like: c\users\user\Dropbox\DuplicatiBackups where I MUST have Dropbox installed (this seems a bit weak since I could delete or corrupt that folder locally)? Regardless …Path on Server… is confusing and I have trolled the manual etc etc and cannot find an answer.
Secondly, even though I go through the OAUTH2 signin and get a token, Duplicati ALWAYS tells me I need a valid token. I have repeated this at least 5 times and everytime I get the …Failed to connect: You need an AuthID, you can get it from: etc
I have the authID setup here:
The authorization token retrieved from Duplicati OAuth Handler
Default value: “”
Storage Type Dropbox
Path on server The actual Dropbox link to the folder
AuthID dLi0f59i4z4AAA etc
and still the error: …Failed to connect: You need an AuthID, you can get it from: etc
So what do I need to do, this is becoming (nope it actually is) very frustrating. I realise that you are doing this for free, but I still need it to work?
EDIT: It looks to me like you need to put in a Dropbox local folder as the path (then I assume you rely on Dropbox syncing). Apart from the fact that the local dropbox folder could get corrupted thus corrupting the folder in the cloud, the other issue we have is that we are backing up a 150GB GCI. So plenty of space on Dropbox (ie. at least 1 Tb), but VERY limited space locally. So dumping down backups (even incrementals) would kill our GCI very quickly. The bottom line is that I’d rather NOT store backup data locally on the server.
