Different versions, same repository


#1

Does it matter if there’s a version difference of the restic program between servers when using the same repository?

I guess restic creates an own hostname part within it right, does it conflict when the versions differ that talk to the repository?


#2

As far as I understand, currently all versions are compatible.

Just better to avoid versions older than 0.8 because of metadata cache will not work (as far as I remember pre-0.8 versions were saving data and metadata to same pack files).

@dionorgua you’re exactly right, and that’d also be my recommendation. :slight_smile:
