I just created my very first snapshot with Restic and here’s the output:
Files: 47494 new, 0 changed, 0 unmodified
Dirs: 471 new, 0 changed, 0 unmodified
Data Blobs: 256329 new
Tree Blobs: 452 new
Added to the repo: 297.813 GiB
processed 47494 files, 360.636 GiB in 61:43:19
So my question is, why it is reporting 297GB of added data out of 360GB when the data is 360GB big and also, when I mount the snapshot and run a ‘du’ command, it is also showing 360GB.
My second question is, I have a bunch of duplicate files on the original data spreaded across different directories, does Restic does de-duplication on these like checking checksums etc and not adding them to the repo?
