The repository server works absolutely amazing. Fantastic how multiple clients can push their files in and unique files are only stored once. The ‘content addressable storage’ concept was new to me, yet very powerful.
Although rclone support is build into Kopia, I slightly prefer backups of clients to the repo server and the entire repo is synced to 1) backblaze B2 and b) MS onedrive using rclone.
What is the recommended way of restoring files from these cloned repositories?
1.1) In case local storage dies, should I simply download all from the remote repo and start the repo server with that file paht?
1.2 What are ways to access the remotely stored repo, e.g. to test integrity of the backups, without restoring everything?
PS thanks for the ‘repo’ shorthand for ‘repository’ when using the CLI (e.g. kopia repo status)
