Have any of you tried dupplica. I am in my trial period of Backblaze and I am still looking around. Dupplica seems rather good, any experience around macrumors?

I have never heard of Dupplica until your post. Boy is that service inexpensive.

I never heard about them before either. I really stumble on it when researching what my options are.

I find that crashsplan has an edge for the retention of file duration.
Dupplica seems to have an edge on price.
Backblaze seems good for protecting one computer.

I have check terms and conditions, none of them are liable in case of data loss

CrashPlan

The only issue I have with CrashPlan is when it synchronizes (different process than the backup). The file synchronization goes quickly, but the block synchronization takes a few hours. Small problem though, I just run caffeinate, and let it finish.

Just thought I'd drop that off...

I am trying dupplica right now. At startup, it asks what should be saved. Nothing seems selected by default. I have selected /users/ folder. That seems to be an error.

Dupplica is scanning the folders and uses as much CPU as it can.
Strangely bytes/read are rather low.

I tried to change my folder selection but the tool crashes when trying to change it.
I noticed than that I had two dupplicacore processes running.

After force quitting both processes and starting the app again, i was able to change the backup selection.
I changed the backup to continuous mode. It quickly uploaded a few files but nothing more.

When trying to force a scan... it crashed.

Well that's it I will not spent more time on this tool. Back to backblaze.

Well I asked myself the question about the tool. Clearly no one had heard of them... which was a good thing
