    Yes that's what I thought, that makes sense. But the article says that if I want to use regular expression I have to put it in brakets (https://www.duplicati.com/articles/Filters/). Maybe it is a typo in the article and they should have written [[^/]].

    @kenkendk
    @diddyKonGG_twitter Yes, you are right, I have updated the article to include the [] around the regular expressions

    hi. i've duplicati running daily on a qnap nas. it takes very long to complete backup, about 13h. but the 99% of time is for checking files, because only few files change every days. there are some options to decrease the "checking time" required to understand which files it has to backup? check-filetime-only improve performance?
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    You can try --check-filetime-only to see if it makes a difference. Real fix is to make the server use inotify and monitor which files are potentially changed, but this is not implemented yet.

    with --check-filetime-only 6h instead of 14h ! thanks

    Helloo! Some of the computers i'm working with have a very slow upload speed (0.4-0.8 mbps) and wondered if there are any tricks to help the stability/speed of the backup jobs?

    @kenkendk sorry haven't been on here for a while! The destination is to Azure blobs

    @TimUK
    trying it today with the upload volume size cranked all the way down

    Have you got an exemple of Json generate by duplicati after saving ?
    WolfTohsaka
    @WolfTohsaka
    @julian887878 : the simplest would be to install and run duplicati in order to get a real-time one
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    @julian887878 Yes, best is to download and look at what it makes. Here is an example:
    {
      "CreatedBy": "MiG v1",
      "Schedule": {
        "Repeat": "1D"
      },
      "Backup": {
        "Name": "scheduletest",
        "TargetURL": "webdavs://test/path?auth-username=user&auth-password=pass",
        "Settings": [
          {
            "Name": "encryption-module",
            "Value": null,
          },
          {
            "Name": "dblock-size",
            "Value": "50mb",
          }
        ],
      }
    }

    please disregard my query because its working much better now after adjusting the volume size :)

    Are there any tricks to getting Duplicati to run in the debugger on Windows after building it? After setting the TrayIcon as the startup project and exiting the normal instance of Duplicati, I get the below exception.

    "Delegate to an instance method cannot have null 'this'."
    Here's the stacktrace.
    Duplicati.Library.Utility.AsyncHttpRequest.AsyncHttpRequest Line 111 Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.HttpServerConnection.PerformRequestInternal<Duplicati.Server.Serialization.Interface.IServerStatus> Line 418 Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.HttpServerConnection.PerformRequest<Duplicati.Server.Serialization.Interface.IServerStatus> Line 340 Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.HttpServerConnection.UpdateStatus Line 112 Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.HttpServerConnection.HttpServerConnection Line 92 Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.Program.RealMain Line 202

    It is crashing on this line
    ((HttpWebRequest)m_request).ServerCertificateValidationCallback = HttpContextSettings.CertificateValidator.ValidateServerCertficate;
    because HttpContextSettings.CertificateValidator is null.
    I tracked that back to StartSession() in CallContextSettings.cs.
    acceptAnyCertificate is false, allowedCertificates is null. I set acceptAnyCertificate to true, but then I get a "The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request." in AsyncHttpRequest.AsyncWrapper.OnAsync().

    @seantempleton
    Okay, maybe I spoke too soon. I assumed that exception was going to stop the program. If I hit F5 to get past it, then the web GUI opens
    "that exception" being the Bad Request. I can continue past that one. But the first one, the "Delegate to an instance method cannot have null 'this'" kills the program immediately

    @seantempleton It should just work in VS, but the code you mention has been changed a few days ago, I think I can reproduce the error, will try to fix it asap.

    Is there a way to identify the current file that is being "worked on" by duplicati? whether that be action is verification, restore, or backup?
    I can probably identify it in lsof | grep mono but it's not easy to identify out of the long list which file is the focus of duplicati at the moment
    e.g. this could be handy when I'm wondering why the backup is taking so long...so I would try to identify what new gigantic file is being included in the backup and potentially cancel the backup or exclude it from future backups

    Hello, I couldn't find the answer : is it possible to remove the latest uploaded backup from the remote server ? With the UI / cmdline ? Or maybe be removing the uploaded files (& rebuilding the db ?) ?
    "use-case" : I put big files in a folder I supposed to be excluded from backup, but they were uploaded and I only saw that after the backup finished
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    You can use the "purge" command to remove specific files from all backups. There is no UI version for it, but there is a "Commandline" section in the WebUI

    @Alex131089
    I tried remove latest backup files from remote + list-broken-files which worked, but purge-broken-file gave the Unable to start the purge process as there are 3 orphan file(s) error (repair needed for this error I suppose ?) ; so I restored the remote files from the trashbin, went with delete --version=0, and it seems to work :)
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    Good that it works. General rule: never touch the remote files!
    Alexandre L.
    @Alex131089
    noted ^^
    I'm curious, what was the error mentioned about ?
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    The error message looks a bit strange, because it reports "extra" files are present.
    cjustin88
    @cjustin88
    is there a way to instruct Duplicati to ignore open files?
    for example, I have a duplicati job just to backup my virtual machine disks, but at the moment, I have one of those disks open.
    at the scheduled time, duplicati starts the backup job, but it seems to be reading it (verification, perhaps?) this is a wasted operation, since the virtual disk is open and backing it up will result in broken state
    Kenneth Skovhede
    @kenkendk
    No, there is currently no such feature.

    hi, my duplicati is rebuilding database since 4 days :( is it working? how can I know what it's doing and how much does it still require ?
    sqlite file is updated, but only 100mb more than yesterday evening (12h ago)

    Hi Guys, how do i start a new Backup into a existing Folder on my mega.nz Cloud. I tried To simply Copy The URL from the existing Folder in the Browser an pasted It into the Destination Field in Duplikati. But i get an Error Box " Folder Not available do you want To create a new one"

    I get "The database disk image is malformed" on one of my backups. When I click on "show" I don't get any more information.
    db repair didn't help, what can I do to fix this?

    i've a 1tb of data, backup requires 5-6h, but from a couple of days it's increasing, last backup required 8h30m, is it because i keep too much versions?
    every days i've 100-200mb of new data, not more

    @Rubyjunk
    Hi, why does it take so long for duplicati to check for updated files? There are tools like Everything for Windows that can search the NTFS index for files in under a second, why isn't possible to do the same for ex. Date Modified?
    Sorry for the naive question

    sendell Hey guys :)
    sendell just wanted to be sure, what is the current state of beta VS experimental channels ?
    sendell is beta supposed to be more stable ? I'm wondering since experimental is the default one

    Hello, Can someone explain what to actually put into the oem-app-name.txt file
    I've tried looking everywhere for an example of what it should contain, ive tried appName="App", i've tried "App" and with and without quotes, and its still build with the same name "Duplicati 2"
