Quick question, is there a way to prevent the user from quitting Duplicati?
User account runs duplicati, and backup.
Can this be installed as an administrator level service so that users cannot quit the process?
You can install Duplicati as a service. Regular user normally cannot start or stop system processes.
As a plus, Duplicati won’t be executed twice if both users are logged on to the same machine.
One caveat is that Home directory has to be included by absolute path (C:\Users[user]) instead of environment variables (%USER% / %APPDATA%)
Disable autostartup on initial installation
Install Duplicati as a service
Use portable mode to prevent configuration loss on next Windows Update
This is probably because of the latest Windows 10 Spring Creators Update (1803).
If the service is running using the LOCAL SYSTEM account (this is the default account for starting services), the user profile folder is located in C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile.
Duplicati stores its configuration and local databases in a subfolder of this location (C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Duplicati or `C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Duplicati).
