I've searched online and can't determine, but is duplicati single or multi threaded?

 I've had no success with this docker at all

 

I am backing up to Amazon Cloud, and any backup i create will fail with a variety of different error messages.

 

The backup will always start off OK, then will fail with either locking or just a generic error

 

Very frustrating as i really like the idea of this docker

Try setting the amzcd-consistency-delay to be on. (15 seconds) under option for the backup, advanced options. This may help as 

amazon needs a small delay for results to stay consistent.

I have a question about Duplicati. I am backing up about 1.7TB of data to Amazon Drive. Photos, work archives, emails, etc. I ran the backup and it took a long time, but eventually it finished.

 

Now that I am running it every 2 days, it looks like it's backing up the entire 1.7TB again. Is this normal? In thinking about it, if its encrypting,compressing and uploading the data in 50MB chunks, it doesn't know what it backed up before in order to only do incremental. Am I correct? I would HATE to backup/store everything unencrypted.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions?

 

Many thanks,

 

Hernando

This is a very good app. But can I store my files like they are and not in zip-files?
