I have a question about restic restore.
I’m willing to use restic to save one massive ftp server and restore it to a new one.
The thing is, when this restore will be done, the new server will already be online and used by clients.
Some clients do not only add new files but also modify old ones (reuploading a new version of on old file with the same name).
When restoring old datas from the backup, new files on new server remain untouched but old (edited) files on new server are overriden by the backup version.
This is undesirable because file version on new server is more recent than backup version.
Therefore, I would like to restore unexisting files on new server but ignore files who are both present on new server and in the backup.
I didn’t find any way to do that (except than restore in an empty folder, and then move only desired files to the target location, but this prevents me to automate this task.)
Is there any way to do this ?
Sorry for bad english !
