Correct entry in Terminal for one file restore

Asked by ozdroggy

I do not seem to get the correct format for the restore one file.

The duplicity backup is on TeraB (Hard drive name) , BULinux18.318Feb20 (folder).

The full entry for the file in the '' is:

new "home/ozdroggy/Documents/Willandra/WVRC/FinanceCtee/Budget202021/WV\x202021\x20Budget\x20-\x20Cut\x201\x2018032020\x20FSC\x20MCchanged.xlsx"

I want to restore this one file to the original folder (Budget202021) which is:


I have tried to use "duplicity restore" and "deja-dup --restore"

My Terminal entry starts with "ozdroggy@I3847 ~ $"

Can some kind soul please tell me the correct terminal entry to follow: ozdroggy@I3847 ~ $

The original file has been accidentally deleted from my computer.

Thanks...... Mike

Hello ozdroggy,

you can try this:

deja-dup --restore-missing ~/Documents/Willandra/WVRC/FinanceCtee/Budget202021

this will launch the proper user interface where you can select the desired file (after quite some waiting time).

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask ozdroggy for more information if necessary.
