I am currently investigating backup solutions and have decided to give urbackup a go and it looks quite promising so far (client/server model, restore via web-UI, compression & deduplication).
However, after setting up two backup jobs (one linux, one Win10 to an Ubuntu fileserver via SMB) I see a multitude of errors, which I cannot solve or even understand:
Cannot copy directory metadata from "/backups/machine1/201109-1057/.hashes/user/AppData/Local/Keypirinha/default/App/.dir_metadata" to "/backups/machine1/201109-1517/.hashes/user/AppData/Local/Keypirinha/default/App/.dir_metadata". - No such file or directory (errorcode=2)
More warnings of kind: Creating hardlink from "/backups/machine1/201109-1057/user/.config/scoop/config.json" to "/backups/machine1/201109-1517/userr/.config/scoop/config.json" failed. Loading file... Skipping.
Any idea what could cause these errors and how I could solve them?
Additionally, sometimes, during a backup, the no. of “files in queue” is climbing instead of decreasing and the amount that was backed up seems to be miscalculated (higher number on the left). Is this normal?
urbackup is used as a docker image (2.4.13) on an ubuntu 20.04LTS server, storage is provided by a TrueNAS server shared as SMB. Both clients show these errors (the hardlink one more with the windows client) and both are the latest version (2.4.10 on linux & windows).
