--use-fs-snapshot "uknown flag" Windows

Hi all,

In Windows, has the —use-fs-snapshot option been removed?

I’ve tried installing Restic via Scoop (0.11.0), and also the latest Beta (0.11.0-370), but all versions I try return the error “unknown flag” when using this command. The flag is also not listed in the help for either versions.


Please show the complete command that you run/refer to?

Just realised what the issue was. I was running this command:

restic -r "G:\C" --verbose --use-fs-snapshot backup "C:\"

It should have been:

restic -r "G:\C" --verbose backup "C:\" --use-fs-snapshot
