A general question, but do I need a special version of restic to run on an ARM Windows 11 machine? Thanks!
You can build it by yourself - it is not so difficult.
Then download restic source and run build.
Here are all steps:
In the last step you provide:
This is how to do it for the last version (I assume go is already installed and you have git as well):
git clone --depth 1 --branch v0.15.2 https://github.com/restic/restic.git cd restic GOOS=windows GOARCH=arm64 CGO_ENABLED=0 go build -ldflags "-s -w" -tags selfupdate -o restic_0.15.2_windows_arm64.exe ./cmd/restic
Please note that you can build it on any other machine - does not have to be Windows ARM one
It takes 5 min to have windows ARM binary ready:)
You could maybe create a ticket on github to include Windows ARM build in official releases.
Until one day included you have to DIY
