Support for error correction

It would be great to have support for Reed Solomon code with 7% overhead to correct for integrity errors.

In my experience, they always happen with file systems that are not ZFS and BTRFS, and with raid. Something like par3.

Is this feature in roadmap?

This is tracked in https://github.com/restic/restic/issues/256 and more specifically https://github.com/restic/restic/issues/804. To answer your question, it’s not something that is on the short term roadmap, so don’t expect it anytime soon. Instead keep using proper filesystems :slight_smile:
