I am trying to move a backup source from a Linux host to a Windows host (external USB drive).
To do this, I’ve done the following:
- Export the backup job and edit the source path manually to match the Windows drive letter and slash/backslashes, escaped.
- Download the dlist files, decrypt them and edit the json files to update the paths to match the Windows drive letter and slash/backslashes, escaped (I did not do a wholesale find and replace, since there are other slashes in the file)
- Re-encrypt and place the updated dlist files back on the destination
- Import the backup
- Recreate the database
- Run backup
This worked great for one backup job, but on a second one I’m doing this for, it seems to hang indefinitely on the recreate database step. I left it over night and the progress bar is always empty and there is no CPU usage from any duplicati processes on the machine.
Any thoughts about what might be going on?
When viewing the profile log level, the last message I can see is:
Backend event: List - Started: ()
Also I couldn’t seem to find where Duplicati is storing the database files on Windows 10 when running as a service. I tried to navigate to the path listed in the database page, but it doesn’t exist on my system.
