Hello, I use duplicati, unfortunately the disk in my computer has been destroyed, I have dat files stored on the server, unfortunately during restore backup, I get an error related to the failure to restore the database, informing me about missing zip files, is there a way to restore data omitting this error?
Hello @Mat, welcome to the forum!
Sorry to hear your disk was destroyed - hopefully Duplicati can help you get your data back. I have a few questions to get started:
- can you post a few of the actual error messages you’re getting?
- how are you doing the restore (for example, is it via the main “Restore” -> “Direct restore from backup files” option)?
@JonMikelV thanks for answer,
Fortunately, I was able to recover my backup
I received an error regarding specific missing zip files, which prevented me from starting backup restore, I tried several ways to restore and I finally copied 1 zip file, then changed the name of the copied file to the name of the missing files. To reproduce the backup I used duplicati.commandline frist repair database, then restore backup.
“C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\Duplicati.CommandLine.exe” repair “file://destination of zip files” --dbpath=“where save new db\newdb.sqlite” --log-level=profiling --no-encryption
“C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\Duplicati.CommandLine.exe” restore “file:// destination of zip files” --dbpath=“destination of db” --restore-path=" destination of restored files" --no-encryption
Good to hear you got your data back!
And not only that, but you figured out a way of handling the missing zip file error I’ve never considered or heard of before!
(I went ahead and flagged your post as the solution, let me know if you disagree.)
