I enabled periodic backups in Ubuntu 20.04 using Ubuntu's built-in Backups tool (Déjà Dup). I back-up my entire home directory and don't ignore any folders. Back-ups are executed every week.
Today I tried to restore my
~/.steam directory, only to find out that:
$ duplicity --file-to-restore ~/.steam file:///media/Backups/saibot ~/.steam Local and Remote metadata are synchronized, no sync needed. Last full backup date: Thu Apr 29 05:30:39 2021 home/serrano/.steam not found in archive - no files restored.
.steam directory is not even backed-up. I verified this using:
$ duplicity list-current-files file:///media/Backups/saibot | grep -F .steam
But if I try to restore any other directory in my home directory, for example
~/Documents, it works just fine.
Why is the
.steam directory not being backed-up? Note that I don't specified any folders to ignore.
