it simply means duplicity could not access these files. hence they will not end up in your backup. make sure the files are readable (check permissions or runtime locks) if you want them backed up  or as you wrote, simply exclude them. ..ede/duply.net

I fixed it by running dejadup from a live USB and restoring the backup like that. Worked perfectly

The above didnt work for me however i did find a bit of a clunky work around. the trick i have used is to "mount" the remote folder and trick deja dup in thinking its a local folder. Im not sure if i can link being a newbie but look up mounting ssh drives and/or doing it via CIFS. i know it wont be secure as SSH but on a small home network it works for ...

I just found out when I go to advanced options there are three different kernels: 3.16.0-37 3.16.0-34 3.16.0-30 I tried all of them and only the second option works, still I don't know why :)

The only solution I am aware of is pixz (sudo apt-get install pixz), a variant of xz using a blocked encoder which allows for fast random acccess/indexing. Additionally, it is a parallel method using multiple cores for compression. Citing the docs: The existing XZ Utils ( http://tukaani.org/xz/ ) provide great compression in the .xz file format, but ...

I con only think of one solution for you: Make a new partition, with a btrfs filesystem and activate transparent compression. Keep in mind tha some people still considder btrfs an "experimental" filesystem. That being said, my secondary backup HDD is using btrfs (for little over 2 years) and so far it's given me 0 issues. But as usual YMMV. This and this ...

As the usage page suggests, if you run: duplicity /some/dir sftp://uid@other.host/some_dir repeatedly, first it will be a full backup then all subsequent runs will be incremental. You can force it to do full backup after a particular time using the --full-if-older-than <time> parameter. So, duplicity --full-if-older-than 1M /some/dir ...

check the manpage http://duplicity.nongnu.org/duplicity.1.html parameter --full-if-older-than

Option 1 is generally recommended. You don't get compression, but you can exclude sub-directories. It it can be a pain to figure out how the names have been mangled, but the directory hierarchy is preserved. You do need to practice recovering from this or any other backup scheme, and the advice at How to safely back up the "Private" folder? is ...

Try this one. I just removed the '/' from all the excludes. sudo rsync -avz --exclude="tmp" --exclude="sys" --exclude="lost+found" --exclude="mnt" --exclude="proc" --exclude="dev" --exclude="media" / /home/willc86/backup/

Could try this if directories and files within are all you want backing-up. Excludes all hidden directories. rsync -aP --exclude=.* /home/$USER/ /media/$USER/folder

there is a very nice software for this called TimeShift You can backup your current installation any time to some other partition whenever you want and can restore if something goes wrong. TimeShift for Linux is a application that provides functionality similar to the System Restore feature in Windows and the Time Machine tool in Mac OS. TimeShift protects ...

This problem impacts the underlying backend software, duplicity as well as deja dup. I filed a bug report for duplicity, which has now both confirmed the bug and issued a patch, see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/duplicity/+bug/1453232 This bug affects duplicity version 0.7.01 and is fixed in 0.7.02.

When I was running minecraft servers I used rsync to copy from my ramdisk into a physical backup. Before you do this make sure you pause your world. I also used this method to sync my ftp server and my game servers. you can add a script into your crontab that pauses the world saves, then rsyncs to your backup directory, then re-enables world saves. you ...

Global issues: Use indentation. It makes your code more readable (for you and for us). Use only straight quotes in bash. Other types of quotes might break commands. Do not append ; at the end of a single command. The ; character has a specific meaning and it's useless if appended to a single command. Specific issues: fdisk -l; You need to run fdisk as ...

Anacron can you what you are asking and is available in the Ubuntu repo's. From the man page: Anacron is used to execute commands periodically, with a frequency specified in days. Unlike cron(8), it does not assume that the machine is running continuously. Hence, it can be used on machines that aren't running 24 hours a day, to control regular jobs as ...

fwiw, added a dconf setting if you build this from source, it will create a volsize setting in org.gnome.DejaDup. you can change it to 500mb with dconf-editor. patched source code for deja-dup

Déjà Dup is an incremental back-up utility which means it will back up all the files that have changed since the last backup. To restore a backup, click the Restore button in the Déjà Dup window. It will automatically show you the folder that you last backed up to (or you can select the one you want). See here for a tutorial.

I would not recommend dd for this task. It will copy sector by sector, raw disk data; so it will work only if the partitions are exactly the same size and layout (leading to corruption otherwise). And then you have again another almost-full partion, that you have to extend... messy. And if the source filesystem is almost full, it's probably quite fragmented, ...

you can either use some tools like clonezilla , redo backup or you can use command line tools such the command dd dd if=/dev/sdXX of=/dev/sdXX bs=4096 check this for how to dd or the command rsync rsync -av /mount-point-of-first-drive /mount-point-of-second-drive based on @Rman, for your case it's better to use rsync. Else if you want to use dd you ...

We can also use a software called TimeShift to backup installed software. By default this software does not backups your home directory

Your GPG secret keyring is already encrypted, though it's only as strong as your passphrase (which is true of any encryption). I'd make a tar file of all the files you want to backup (a few folders/files listed to tar, or with -T, --files-from get names to extract or create from FILE) and pipe tar's output to GPG. Basically: tar -c folder | gpg --output ...
