We recently moved to New Zealand and just before shipped some of our things, I realised that the old PC (which had a lot of data backed up to B2 storage with duplicati) wouldn’t fit in the moving boxes. So I grabbed the hard drive and packed that and gave away the (rest of) the old PC. Now we’ve received our shipped stuff, and I’ve installed the harddrive in the new PC. All the data is still there, but I haven’t installed duplicati on this PC yet. I don’t remember copying over any duplicati related files, and I can’t find anything other than a “duplicati-service-files” folder that only contains an empty “control_dir_v2” folder and a 56 KB “Duplicati-server.sqlite” that hasn’t been modified since February 2018 (might have been from the original “tray” installation, before I converted to the “service” installation?).
What I’d like to do it “continue backing up the same locations to duplicati” … that is, I’d like any new or modified files to be backed up, without restoring any data that might have been deleted on the hard drive (though I’d still want that data to remain in the backup, according to the retention policies) … does that make sense? Is that feasible?
I’m not sure what exactly my other options might be
