I’m quite new to Restic and just recently started to use it (to backup my simple Raspberry PI NAS).
Regarding Restic everything works like a charm and the installation process was easy.
I do have one question. I am backing up approx 2TB. Restic is running for a few days now (daily backup to B2). But when I look at the B2 Bucket size it’s only 746.8 GB in size vs the ~2TB I expected it to be.
I have narrowed down that Restic isn’t able to backup the Timemachine folders, but that seems something I should be able to fix (permission error). Most other data comes from a Windows (10) backup to the NAS, which should backup fine (no errors).
Excluding the Timemachine folders from the total backup this still leaves +/- 1.5 TB of data I would expect to be send to B2 vs the 746.8 GB in the bucket. And I’m kind a lost why this is the case, does anyone has tips on how to proceed?
