After failing to fix a login issue, now I'm attempting to restore from a backup file using Duplicity. As I have no clue what went wrong where, I want to restore from backup file, let's say 30 days prior.
From what I can see, this should be the command:
sudo duplicity --force -t 30D file:///backup-folder /
However, I get a bunch of
[Errno 17] File exists... and I'm not sure if this is normal.
I would like to restore EVERYTHING- root and user folder and all. I'm about ready to format the drive and restart from scratch... so I'm willing to try anything at this point.
P.S. I cannot use Deja-dup, as I cannot login to GUI except as a Guest.
