So, to clarify the question, I had a backup on another Ubuntu account, but I had to reinstall Ubuntu over it, but still have said backup on my external hard drive. I went into deja-dup and attempted to specify the folder where the backup was located but it repeatedly says "no backup to restore in this location". So I guess it's a two pronged question. Is there some flag in duplicity that I could somehow trigger to get it to recognize a different backup or something? If not am I just sol?

  • What format are these backup files - Your ubuntu account shouldn't have anything to do with these archives or do you mean your user account on your Ubuntu Desktop is different for the backups? – SD Allen Nov 22 '18 at 13:55
  • the user account is different for the backup, though I would still be able to enter the password. they are .difftar.gz – Vincent Dec 22 '18 at 23:12
