I have recently upgrade to nextcloud version 23.0.0 mainly because I was wanting to make use of the backup application to backup my nextcloud to an external hard drive that I have defined under external storage. I am able to access the external storage location/folder from any of the mobile devices that I have connecting to nextcloud (so I know the external storage setup is working). For reference the folder name for the defined external storage is ‘element’.
I downloaded/installed the backup app and set it up as per a video I saw - was pretty much straightforward and didn’t really need to do much on the setup screen (leaving the default values pretty much). The particular things I did were:
- disabled encryption (do not need it)
- exported configuration (saving the text in a file - i’m not totally sure how/when this will be used)
- defined a restoring point location (here I selected from the dropdown the path to my ext storage area and then under restoring point location i put the name of the subfolder I created there). I put the same information under app data. It isn’t totally clear that I have done this correctly so am interested to here feedback on these 2 particular settings.
I then pressed the button ‘create full restoring point’ expecting that it would perform an initial backup. I assumed that when it does create a backup it would place it in the subfolder I mentioned in my last point. However, nothing has ever shown up there. Also, the ‘create full restoring point’ button currently seems to be non-responsive and just has a msg above it saying in red ‘the creation of a restoring point has been requested and will be initiated soon’.
So, I’m not sure I have this setup correctly and would like to know how I get these backups to start occurring. Have I setup the
