this is my first post here, so forgive me any unknown mistakes I made.
I’m going first steps with restic so I saw several things but cannot connect them well.
I’ve settled and driven a backup repo which I went to move to another place via rsync.
After some fiddling I got all files to the new place except this one:
btw: is this called a “package”?
It appears to be on a bad sector on the harddisk.
No I would like to restore the bad block from existing good data while keeping the backup history - at least most of it.
… doesn’ complain anything
restic check --read-data
… gets zombie process when trying to read the bad block.
restic find --pack b14a2103c1a67d410c2da56e3e952ba218205c4b3af997ad508dfeba43b227f0 -r /old/place/restic-Backup
It finished and showed (examples extracted)
[..] Found blob d013c9aceacbdf475a6322d1e254f33291b7f46e87646fe6af930d958407e2fe ... in file /.config/QtProject.conf (tree 35704581da1d0ea9c1628f5ed755cfd880aaeea41d9335c15d35682342372b01) ... in snapshot ae412986 (2021-05-04 17:31:28) [..] Found blob 1b83e9c1adf1eff0c6c3d77e94fba918f15f8785da0b1ee672c094a7513562bb ... in file /.config/Trolltech.conf (tree 9a7c57e53c27c2ad7556c07b07c84016cb1df796398f618ae450f56d7966d297) ... in snapshot c35e8f9f (2021-02-27 17:43:40) [..]
So my first idea to forget and prune the affected snapshot and this way to
force restic to get the missing data at the next backup run apparently won’t
rtfm hints on this are highly appreciated :o))
