I made test backup of my macbook to Wassabi trial. All backups went ok.
However, once I try to recover file nothing happens.
What I do (filename has a space in it):
restic restore latest --include “/Users/paul/Desktop/test large.mp4” --target /tmp/restore-work -v
What I get on console:
repository 246573f9 opened successfully, password is correct
restoring <Snapshot efdefeef of [/Users/paul] at 2019-10-28 11:14:23.960825 +1000 AEST by paul@BabyMarvin> to /tmp/restore-work
And restic exits immediately. What am I missing?
Hi @ppoloskov and welcome to the restic community
Possibly your path you provided was wrong. I used your command exactly like you but altered it a bit like so:
╭─ moritz@mint /tmp/tmp.lzFURyCvDr 400 10:27:50
╰─ restic restore latest --include "*.mp4" --target .
Then checked my output and there definitely were mp4 files there.
Maybe check your file path again - maybe don’t specify the path at all but just the filename.
Thank you @moritzdietz
Turns out the file I was about to restore wasn’t in the latest snapshot.
Ha! Well that makes sense then Glad you were able to figure it out.
