How to change the maintenance user for the GUI tasks?


I am using the Win GUI. One of my repo has maintenance issue due to the user ownership. How could I run such tasks as required user in the GUI app?

This is the error
Error: maintenance must be run by designated user: USER

Either disconnect and connect again as a user which is allowed to run maintenance or change maintenance ownership to another user (it is CLI command only).

Thanks for the reply. How do I do that with the GUI app permanently? That seems to be for the session only.

When I do that, the original user can’t make actual snapshots :frowning:

I told you already that you have to use CLI to do it. GUI does not contain all kopia functionality.

What does the “maintenance tasks” in the GUI app do exactly as in cli command? I can maybe replicate that as a CLI command.

Here maintenance description:

Yes. GUI app tries to run maintenance tasks based on your maintenance schedule.
