I’ve got restic snapshotting nicely to my local file system.
Yesterday I worked out how to do snapshotting to Google Drive using rclone (on Windows). This worked without any problems with a “toy” backup.
The trouble is that my main valuable directory, My Documents, has about 5 GB in it, and I have a very slow upload bandwidth. And I mean really slow, like 1 Mbps.
This hopefully will be just about enough when the repo is already in place, as occasional files are added, deleted or modified. But getting the original 5GB repo (first snapshot) in place is naturally proving challenging.
I read here that
restic backup is able to resume snapshotting if it gets cut off mid-flow, which is great. But I have no idea what percentage has so far been processed, or indeed whether this is practical to attempt this at all, at 1 Mbps.
Is there any command that can help out with this (i.e. comparing what half-built snapshot might be in place with the source local directory, and give a “percentage done” type of figure)?
