According to the documentation, in order to mount a restic repo as if it were a drive, the command should look like this:
sudo restic -r /media/restic-repo mount /mnt/restic-dir
It appears to have worked … at first. But when I get to /mnt/ I can get no further. A quick ls -la command shows me this:
ls: cannot access ‘restic-dir’: Permission denied
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Apr 27 19:07 ./
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Apr 27 14:44 …/
d??? ? ? ? ? ? restic-dir/
So, ya. Pretty bad news for me. I could still re-mount the old drives and recover the data, but that’s … work.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated
Sorry, I posted this last night right before bed. I completely forgot to give some context. I’m moving everything from Kubuntu 19.10 to a fresh installation of Kubuntu 20.04.
All of my restic repos were created under 19.10. This is what I use to make my backups:
sudo restic -r /media/restic-repo backup -x /
The previous file system was ext4 as is my current filing system.
However, during Focal Fossa’s installation ( I don’t know how much this could affect this) I thought I’d activate the hardware RAID support since I just purchased a few identical drives just for the reinstall.
But - for whatever reason, the active hardware RAID support was causing a grip of other issues, so I had to turn it off. Again - not sure if that has anything to do with this - but considering the amount of issues it caused; I’m not putting it past it.
Ok - so, hopefully that fills in some of the gaps I left before.
