Restoring a directory from S3

Asked by Eric Christensen on 2016-10-28

I'm trying to restore a directory from S3. I see it listed in the backup-list but I get a "/data/Eric/files/Geneology not found in archive - no files restored." when trying to restore.

Using this as my restore command:

duplicity restore --file-to-restore "/data/yyy/zzz/Geneology" $DEST /home/xxx/Genealogy --s3-use-new-style

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

can you show that it lists that file using 'duplicity list-current-files'?

Yes, that's what I meant by it being listed in the backup-list. The directory and all the files appear in that list.

Restoring individual files also seem to fail.

Since duplicity uses tar format, the filename must also be in tar format. Try:

$ duplicity restore --file-to-restore "data/yyy/zzz/Geneology" $DEST /home/xxx/Genealogy --s3-use-new-style

Note the lack of the leading '/' in the file-to-restore.

Like this?

duplicity restore -r /data/Eric/files/Geneology $DEST /home/echristensen/Genealogy --s3-use-new-style -v8

Cause that still fails:
/data/Eric/files/Geneology not found in archive - no files restored.

I can provide full logs if that would help.

duplicity restore --file-to-restore /data/Eric/files/Geneology $DEST /home/echristensen/Genealogy --s3-use-new-style -v8

/data/Eric/files/Geneology not found in archive - no files restored.

Opps, sorry, I see what you're talking about. I think I already tried that but let me confirm (by trying it again).

Eric Christensen (sparks) said : #8

duplicity restore --file-to-restore "data/Eric/files/Geneology" $DEST /home/echristensen/Genealogy --s3-use-new-style -v8

data/Eric/files/Geneology not found in archive - no files restored.

So it doesn't appear to be a / problem.

can you show the part of the output of 'duplicity list-current-files ...' that shows that the file/folder exists in the backup?

btw. is it Geneology or Genealogy?

Yeah, the directory was misspelled. Here's the entry. There are many files in the list but this is the first few:

ok, it should be in there ;)

let's start using bigger guns now. please send/pastebin/mail me personally (as you prefer)

1. the complete output of a restore command w/ max. verbosity '-v9'

2. the complete file listing on the backend

you may want to obfuscate private info in the output before you send it.
