I guess that’s as reproducible a problem as one can get (which is good), but other things confuse me.
I’m confused. C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2 is the installation spot, you don’t create it, and typically there’s no Duplicati data in there unless you use –portable-mode to make a
data folder there to hold databases.
Typically, databases are in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Duplicati, unless it’s Windows service install.
Could you say more about how you installed? Installs can be either quite simple, or elaborate user setups.
You can also look at your job’s Database page to see where the database is for that job. Is it as expected?
Original post had path above, which looks like a Duplicati database, so how did the question below arise?
You don’t create the AppData folder either, and when I hear term “program files” I think C:\Program Files".
Please clarify. You can also get a log by About --> Show log --> Live --> Verbose to see where program is getting its files from. It “should” use your
Source data configuration. If it’s not, something seems very off.
A more permanent and somewhat nicer log is possible with log-file=<path> and log-file-log-level=verbose.
EDIT: After figuring out the basics of the situation, a higher log level might help, but they can get enormous. Verbose level does show some paths, which might be sensitive, but for a small log maybe you can redact.
How are these repeat stops done? Are they hard stops, such as killing Duplicati (not good, but sometimes needed). Regardless, I think restart tries to not repeat backup already done, but pick up where interrupted.
