I have recently installed Duplicati (220.127.116.11_beta_2021-06-17) on my Windows 10 PC and tried to set up the first backup, however when I want to select the source data, there is nothing showing in the folder path frame, where I would select what to back up.
I do not have any filters, or files to exclude set up.
As I have multiple folders to back up, which are not included in one parent directory, selecting the source data manually is not an option. (Or is it? I have not found a way in the manual to add multiple paths directly.)
I have ran through the forum, but found only one similar topic, and the solution in that was to do a hard reload in the browser. I did that, nevertheless, it did not work.
I tried to add a firewall rule for port 8200 and shutting down the firewall completely as well, neither solved my problem.
I’ll try to start a fresh browser profile, or even try with a completely different browser (as there are really only 2 browser engines now, that is either try Firefox, or a Chrome based browser). This looks like a display problem - the list looks rather short, and there is a scrollbar that gives an indication that there is something in it.
Hmm, good point. @bundi02 can you try selecting any “invisible” text that may be there? Click in lower right of the white (don’t catch the scroll bars), drag to upper left, ctrol-C and try pasting it in notepad or something? That can at least help send the investigation one way or the other.
Neither of those have solved my problem.
However I did manage to set up the backup, by adding the source paths directly, one after another. It took a while, but worked.
It is interesting, because when I checked the backed up data in the restore menu, there the source data path is visible.
I think it is a browser issue. Maybe some extension you have installed is interfering with the Duplicati web UI. I agree with @gpatel-fr’s suggestion to try a totally different browser engine as a test. If you normally use Chrome/Edge, try Firefox. (Or vice versa.) Don’t install any extensions and see how it looks.
