Good evening. I hope eveyone enjoyed the holidays.
I may have used duplicati a little bit wrong. I should have seen this ending coming, never thinking about the end. And I may need help disbanding a backup that is no longer needed.
I had duplicati monitor and backup a folder that had a good split of files changing, and staying the same.
Now that folder has no longer to be monitored, but a lot of it is supposed to be archived.
But a good chunk could also be deleted, and I’d like to archive them outside of Duplicati archives.
The problem is, the old versions should be manually sighted.
There are 153 Versions of the backup, which is all in all 112GB big. Could have been better, could have come worse.
My question is:
Is there a way to restore everything duplicati has every archived, but in a smarter way?
Meaning not to restore files again in the next version that were already restored identical already?
I imagine basically repacking everything in the original folder, but with suffixes/präfixes for different dates, if neccessary.
If that is impossible with the included tools, has anyone run into something similar?
How to I “crosscompare” all the versions without needing 10’s of Terabytes of free disk space.
Thank you very much.
