Restore fails when attempting same location

When attempting a restore to the original location, the restore always fails to restore any files with the warning below. I am able to restore if I choose to restore to a different location.

[Warning-Duplicati.Library.Main.Operation.RestoreHandler-NoFilesRestored]: Restore completed without errors but no files were restored

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Do the files exist still? Duplicati won’t overwrite existing files if they are the same as the backup version (even if you have “overwrite” selected).

The same thing happens if I select “Save different versions with timestamp in file name”. I guess based on your previous response that Duplicati see there has not been any change to the file so it does not restore the file at all, unless I tell it to restore it to a different location - is that correct?

Yes, that is correct.
