Where does Duplicati keep its log files?

I searched

  • C:\ProgramData\Duplicati
  • C:\Users\Chloe\AppData\Roaming (No Duplicati)
  • C:\Users\Chloe\AppData\Local\Duplicati
  • https://www.duplicati.com/articles/
  • https://duckduckgo.com/?q=duplicati+logs&ia=web
  • https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/duplicati/log$20directory%7Csort:relevance
  • https://forum.duplicati.com/search?q=log%20file
  • C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2

I saw an error about a file a few days ago I need to investigate, but the log in the web interface only shows the latest 25 messages or so.


There are a number of logs.

The general logs are stored in %LOCALAPPDATA%Duplicati\Duplicati-server.sqlite.
The “per-backup” logs are stored in the local database (you can get the path from the “Database” menu.
Then there is a crash log in %LOCALAPPDATA%Duplicati\crashlog.txt.
And you can also have a log file set with --log-file=C:\logfile.txt.

That’s useful, thanks… And where can I find the key to decrypt it?
