I’m trying to do a full restore to validate my backup since I’m getting verification errors when backing up to my NAS using sftp.
The description of the no-local-db option says: “When listing contents or when restoring files, the local database can be skipped. This is usually slower, but can be used to verify the actual contents of the remote store.”
This seems to indicate that I should be able to do a restore with this option set, albeit slower than if I were to use the local db.
Since I want to verify the integrity of my backup as much as possible, I’m trying to restore with both no-local-db and no-local-blocks set.
When I try to run the restore, I get a dialog box stating “Failed to fetch path information: Listing prefixes is not supported without a local database, consider using the “repair” option to rebuild the database.” Additionally, I get a red error message stating “Listing prefixes is not supported without a local database, consider using the “repair” option to rebuild the database.”
Is this a bug, or is it a sign that my backup data is broken? If it’s a bug, does anyone know if it’s recent, such that I can run my test with an not too much older version, or has this been hanging around for a while?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
