When some new files get created after the backups, these files do not get removed when I call
restic restore. I am expecting that, with
restore, the system will go back to the previous states where these “new” files weren’t there.
For example, if a backup of folder contains
testing/test2.txt got created later on. Running
restic restore would not delete
My guess is that, by default, restic does not tackle newly created files after backups. I understand that this behavior could be desirable in some ways but think that we could have a way (like a flag) to specify that we should delete files that do not exist in a folder from the backup.
