So I’ll preface this with I’m extremely new to Duplicati and this stuff. I recently set up a NAS with OMV and am using Duplicati to backup files to Backblaze B2.
I want to make sure I understand exactly what’s happening with my backups and how to restore them etc before I go uploading hundreds of GBs to backblaze. So I started with my Documents folder. I wanted to test the restore and it works great. However my understanding is Duplicati saves older versions of files. So I wanted to test that. I took a word doc and just made a change and ran the backup again. It appeared to work and just uploaded that file. However I can’t figure out how to restore older versions, every time I do a restore it only restores the latest version. I’ve tried setting all-versions on, tried having it save different versions with timestamp in the file name, etc. I can’t figure it out and I’m not sure if something is wrong or I’m not understanding something here. I’ve set the backup retention to delete backups older than 1 month. Duplicati does show “5 Versions” next to the amount backed up.
If someone can please explain what I’m doing wrong, that would be great!
