bup-import-duplicity — import duplicity backups
bup-import-duplicity is EXPERIMENTAL (proceed with caution)
bup import-duplicity [-n] <source-url> <save-name>
bup import-duplicity imports all of the duplicity backups at
bup save -n save-name. The bup saves will have the same timestamps (via
bup save --date) as the original backups.
Because this command operates by restoring each duplicity backup to a temporary directory, the extent to which the metadata is preserved will depend on the characteristics of the underlying filesystem, whether or not you run
import-duplicity as root (or under
Note that this command will use
mkdtemp (https://docs.python.org/2/library/tempfile.html#tempfile.mkdtemp) to create temporary directories, which means that it should respect any
TMP environment variable settings. Make sure that the relevant filesystem has enough space for the largest duplicity backup being imported.
Since all invocations of duplicity use a temporary
