I’m running MacOS Ventura currently with Duplicati 18.104.22.168_beta_2021-06-17. I had previously been running earlier versions of MacOS with no issues. About 4 months ago I upgraded to Monterey, and it appears that Duplicati stopped starting on its own, and the tray icon never showed up. I had not run backups since then, and my extra storage drive crashed. Something happened in between then and now, and I wasn’t able to restore using the local db. I got my files back eventually - that post is on this thread: https://forum.duplicati.com/t/restore-failing-and-dindex-files-failing-in-rebuild/15491/
This leads me to the question about supportability in the newer versions of MacOS. I was able to use this thread to start it up again https://forum.duplicati.com/t/duplicati-not-starting-on-macos-monterey-12-3-on-m1/14096, and I can set it to auto-start, but I had concerns that I couldn’t safely use the app on the newer versions or I could potentially have issues. Some solutions are discussed in the above thread, but nothing about the menu bar. Maybe it’s a moot point because apparently I didn’t notice the menu icon missing for the past 4 months anyways, but my question is more geared toward other things that could potentially stop working.
I don’t actually have a Mac to test on so I rented an m1 mini on the other side of the planet to test it. It’s a real pain but if I recall correctly it did run and the tray icon appeared, though I think it also shows up in the app bar.
It’s running .net6 with Avalonia for the GUI, doesn’t support encrypted SQLite. Might eat your neighbors homework.
