Hello Nikolaus, thanks for the quick response! This is correct. > As long as at least one s3ql_seq_no object is present, this should not > pose a problem. Does the particular object matter or is any one sufficient? I recovered s3ql_seq_no_[4,5,6,8,10,13] > If the s3ql_metadata object is missing, fsck.s3ql can recreate it from > the .db file.

Good to hear, I looked into the patches that you’ve posted previously for prioritizing local cache. > The s3ql_passphrase object can be recovered from the master key, but > currently there is no code to do that. Not so good to hear, if this is the roadblock that it sounds like, I’m in for a restoration from scratch. > Sounds like a terrible idea. What are you trying to achieve with this? I’m not a fan of convoluted setups either, they seem prone to breakage. That said, this is a way to get s3ql’s dedupe, encryption, and caching capabilities working with ACD. Surprisingly this test configuration’s performance is more than sufficient for my use: personal video that doesn’t change and will only be infrequently read at 5-6mbit, and perhaps once a week have new files added. The user-facing functionality gap is that the filesystem is offline while the local files are synced to acd, otherwise I haven’t run across any issues (other than user-stupidity). If this continues to work it would be interesting to learn to code a bit more and take a stab at adding a real ACD backend to s3ql. Thanks for s3ql, it really does look great. -Nikhil -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "s3ql" group.
