I am currently using this PR to get copy feature. Which is working OK, but I wasn’t able to move ~238Gb of data within 6 hours locally, which is I assume caused by decrypt/re-encrypt mentioned in the initial PR message.
Since I need this kind of feature to be able to provide HA-backup endpoints (to be able to continue backup service while pruning), now I have another way, given the idea from @cdhowie 's this message.
Instead of creating 2 separate repositories, I can just create one repository and clone this empty repository (which only has
config file and one key under
keys folder) as backup repository.
Are there any risks if I just rsync all the files from one repository to the other after a while? I will have files under
data folders, which I assume won’t conflict (or conflict meaning same file anyway).
My quick test shows no issues decrypting the moved data, prune says there is a little bit duplicate data (which is expected) and repacked it.
check command shows no issues.
But other than bloating the repository, any real risk visible (e.g. bricking something)?
