Restore Backup Job

Hi !

I have search everywhere but cannot find an answer…

I’ve lost my 2 hard drive in my Qnap NAS… and of course, I have never thought saving the configuration file.

I can access and restore data from my provider (Wasabi) but I can’t recreate the backup job…

Is there a way to recreate backup job without any configuration file?

Thanks in advance,


Welcome to the forum!

It’s good you can see the data in your Wasabi account. That will tell you the bucket name and path you used in the bucket. For authentication to Wasabi - if you lost that info you could regenerate new credentials on the Wasabi console, so not a big deal.

The critical piece is the encryption passphrase you used to encrypt your backup data. Do you have a record of that?

Hi Drwtsn32,

I can restore my data from wasabi. I know the bucket name and the passphrase.

My problem is that i want to recreate the backup job to keep backup my data from my NAS.

I know that i could create a New backup job and create a new bucket but i was wondering if there is a way to recreate the backup job and keep using the same bucket and just updating the New file.
