I’ve configured a repository and a policy from within Kopia UI to snapshot a large directory (a few hundred GB) regularly. It has been working wonderfully.
Within those files, there is a small subdirectory of programmatically-generated files whose contents will periodically change, but their modification timestamps are preserved for good reasons. Kopia is not including those changes in snapshots due to the unchanged timestamps.
Is there any method or trick I can use to force Kopia to always hash that specific directory, ideally without affecting the other files in the repository?
I saw a
--force-hash option in the documentation, but I’m not sure if/how I could implement that for a specific subdirectory while preserving the policy options. I am capable of writing my own scripts to invoke the CLI, rather than use the UI, if necessary.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
