thank you for making restic! We’ve been using it extensively at work and it’s an amazing tool.
I would like to use restic for my private backups and I have access to a storage provider that is only accessible over WebDAV. Just to try it out, I mounted the provider from within Finder (I work on macos), and tried to initialize the repository with restic.
However, I receive the following error:
Fatal: create repository at /Volumes/.../Crypt failed: MkdirAll: mkdir /Volumes/.../Crypt/index: operation not permitted
I can get around the error if I create the directories
data/00 manually, but the init procedure later dies anyway with the following error:
Fatal: create key in repository at /Volumes/.../Crypt failed: Sync: sync /Volumes/.../keys/<keyid>: inappropriate ioctl for device
I once tried to access the same provider with
rclone, but there too I am getting errors. My question: is this a hopeless case, or is there anything I can set or do to make it work anyway?
