I setup Ubuntu backup functionality to backup my home directory. It takes full backup in a month period. Is there a possibility to change frequency of full backups? I want to setup duplicity to create only seven incremental backup and next it will be full backup. Where I can change it?
As the usage page suggests, if you run:
duplicity /some/dir sftp://email@example.com/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 sftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/some_dir
will do a full backup every month. So you can set the first command to run for seven times and then do a full using the second command.
check the manpage http://duplicity.nongnu.org/duplicity.1.html
