So I’ve been trying to get about 800GB of data backed up to pCloud using Restic + Rclone. I get the data up, but during the process there’s always a few errors. So I tried to do a prune. That took almost a week then failed. So then I tried a rebuild-index and prune, which also had random errors and is now stuck at “0.00% 0 / 5 snapshots” for a good 6-7 hours now. I ran the last attempt at work, instead of at home (I have very slow DSL - I can typically upload to pCloud at 90MB/s at work). Here’s what I got:
I’m not sure if it’s pCloud or if it’s using Rclone as a backend, but things just don’t seem stable. I’ve uploaded a good 300GB of other data, all at once, using JUST Rclone with no issues whatsoever. But for some reason it just isn’t working with Restic. Any ideas?
I have used Backblaze in the past, but saw a good deal on a pCloud lifetime account on Black Friday. Thought it’d be nice to not have a monthly fee. Looks like I might be switching back to a native backend. Restic+Rclone just doesn’t seem as robust.
I started over at home instead and this is what I got. Note that Backblaze works perfectly fine from both locations. I don’t have another backend to test using Rclone, but since Rclone by itself works I’m thinking it’s Restic using Rclone.
It’s not done yet but this is the output from rebuild-index, prune, then check.
Well you could create a troubleshooting one-off repo with some random non important data like stock photos and some big and small files (youtube videos etc) and then give it a shot
But yeah B2 works reliably; possibly it’s a backend issue?! Idk.
