Hello! I’m new here and I have discovered Restic looking for a backup solution for cloud. It is really great, I really like it. I have a script for automatic hourly backups. I was using REST Server for Google Drive. When the new version 0.9 came out I stopped using rest server and started using rclone backend instead, which is great because I don’t have to have rclone running all the time for the automatic backups to function correctly. But there are times that I get this error while pruning old backups:
counting files in repo rclone: 2018/05/24 19:23:20 ERROR : locks/94ca3f76f7c95e11b073d533d9375ab66ce42b245f33a21c4d3cf1560a77e762: Post request put error: googleapi: Error 403: User Rate Limit Exceeded, userRateLimitExceeded Save(<lock/94ca3f76f7>) returned error, retrying after 589.675813ms: server response unexpected: 500 Internal Server Error (500) [6:16] 100.00% 1032 / 1032 packs
It seems to work tho; the script finish with all done. I’ve mount the backup using fuse and it’s all in there. I’m using Ubuntu 18.04, Restic version 0.9 and my cloud is Google Drive. I know Google Drive have like a limit of 750GB or something like that (I read about it somewhere) but my backup is just like 4GB, is not much, I’m just backing up documents to Google Drive. I think this has something to do with Rclone and is not Restic but I just wanted to ask if there’s something wrong with this error. It seems to be working like I said, and until now I haven’t had any problems, it’s just that error. Also, I have seen this error while running
check but I haven’t seen it in a while now; now is just when pruning. Thanks in advance for your help.
