I have mounted my bucket using the s3fs file system on my Linux host.
From cli I can copy and list files to check that the operations are really happening.
I can also verify on AWS manager console that the files are there.
I tried using Duplicati for a backup, selected “local folder or drive” and the s3fs mounted folder, the backup happened apparently correctly.
I can even do a restore that effectively does restore the files.
The only problem is I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE FILES GO.
They’re not listed in the manager console, they’re not listed from the cli on the local host where the s3fs folder is mounted, I searched on my local file system and they’re not there. So WHERE DID THEY GO?
Have they been written to another bucket that I don’t own?
I have >30 years of computer experience and never seen anything like it!
I checked the duplicati logs but they don’t say where the files are being written to so not much help there.
And before anyone asks, yes I did before all that try to select the backup to S3 method but that consistently gave me a “internal error” message.
I’ve often used duplicati before mostly using the sftp method and I know I should be able to see the created *.zip.aes files on the destination location.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
