I am playing with using includes and excludes to optimize Restic. One flag that I noticed that we have for restic forget is --dry-run, but this does not apply to restic backup. I would love something similar for restic backup where I could use it to test my rules before actually running backups. Is there a way to do this that I am missing?
Side note - docs commentary:
This documentation section is called “Include and Excluding Files.” The details are great, but they only talk about excluding files and there is no mention of including them… If the section is only about excluding it should be titled as such. This does also raise the question of how you include files which is not mentioned in the section.
