I’m using Duplicati on macOS High Sierra to backup to my NAS with SFTP (unRAID 6.4.0). It works great for everything on my main drive.
Now, I’ve also got a permanently installed SD (micro SD in a BaseQi holder) formatted HFS+ Journaled which I’m including in the backup. Every backup, I get this error which is driving me nuts.
It seems it can’t back up the .Trashes due to permissions. I’ve tried to have Duplicati ignore /Volumes/Data SDXC/.Trashes as a folder, a file, a … and as a quoted path, no quotes, escaped space, non-escaped space, and no matter what, I get the error.
I suspect the tray-icon part is where the problem lies. Running as a service / daemon should give Duplicati “root” access to all files - including .Trashes.
I have limited (once a week) access to a MacOS machine which has JUST been updated to High Sierra. I’ve been running the service / daemon version there for a while now and haven’t seen that error - then again I don’t think I’m trhing to back up .Trashes either.
If i have time this week I’ll try to make a test job that includes .Trashes and see whether or not it works for me. Until then, I’m glad you found a workaround for the moment. Assuming you’re doing daily backups and a file lives on your system for at least 1 day before ending up in .Trashes, you can at least know that the file has been backed up somewhere…
