I’ve done a restore test with Duplicati 2.0.
I’ve simulated a situation in which I don’t have my pc anymore,
but only my backup files in OneDrive for Business.
I downloades my backup files by OneDrive for Business client.
Using a new (“clean”) copy of Duplicati 2.0, launched with the --portable-mode option,
I chose “Direct restore from backup files” option.
Duplicati 2.0 told me it was recreating a temporary database;
then it told me it was restoring files.
When it finished, it gave me the error:
“Remote file referenced as duplicati-bc39bbcdb32eb49318972f71da00de022.dblock.zip.aes, but not found in list, registering a missing remote file”
and no file was restored.
I found I’m not the first person that faces this problem,
so I think something should be fixed in Duplicati 2.0
(this file is truly missing in backup files folder;
it can be due to a OneDrive error, but why Duplicati goes on
making successful backups even if this file is missing?).
I know other people succeded in having a successful restore by the
but, in my understanding, by this option I can skip a check, but
it doesn’t seem a good solution if this missing file
contains part of my data!
Now, can anyone help me, what should I do
to have a backup I can rely on in case my pc dies ?
For example, I should run a create/repair database ?
Thanks in advance…
