Dozy question - timeshift


#1

I backup automatically once a day with timeshift.

I cocked up, went to my backup, but there was no pCloudDrive folder in the backup!

Any reason why it hadn’t backed up?

Now luckily I only had some configs in it, but would like to know why it didn’t backup. Any ideas or pointers?

You don’t give us any information about what or where your pCloudDrive folder is…

Just guessing: Isn’t pCloudDrive a remote filesystem mounted locally? That could explain why it is not backed up.

/home/steve/pCloudDrive

The files are in the folder though, you are correct I had just worked out it was mounted with mount (edited)

pCloud.fs on /home/steve/pCloudDrive type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=1000)

Any ideas how to include?
