I have been struggling a bit with backups since I migrated over to Manjaro from Mint. On Mint I used Luckybackup and it went well.
On Manjaro KDE I have tried different applications, like KBackup, Dejadup and although these backed up well I did not like that the backup was compressed in an array of different folders that was unrecognizable to me. I like to be able to go in and fetch what I want without having to decompress
So I went back to Luckybackup, but now it throws back lots of errors saying: failed: Invalid argument (22) on files. So I installed Kup Backup and get the same error.
If I check the files that gets the error messages they may have a special character somewhere or a long path.
Which leads me to an impression I have that KDE or is it perhaps dolphin, does not particularly like special characters because sometimes it will not “find” a folder or a file with special characters in it.
This is something I can work around up to a certain point, but being Scandinavian there will be special characters. It is also difficult to avoid long names as I work on an extra HD and once mounted it gets one of those long names of “/mnt/59b08e4b-1a8f-46f2-a410-5699bc1b1b7b/”
I am not much for command line, I prefer GUI. I like to use incremental backup, and I back up to an external HD, that I also use for other things.
Any suggestions on how to go about this?
