Preview list of files to backup

(not sure if this is already somehow possible)

Iā€™d like to have a --dry-run or similar to test my --exclude and --exclude-files. I want to know what would be backed up with the current settings.

Bonus points for also showing the total size of those files :wink:

This is a great idea but not currently possible with restic. The feature request is tracked here: https://github.com/restic/restic/issues/1542
