Duplicacy 2 vs. Duplicati 2 (video)

Cloud Backup

Using a remote storage for backups is a good idea. In case of fire or other catastrophes, your data is still save at the remote storage.

Duplicati flaws

Duplicati failed not only because of the crashes that I discovered several times but also because of its lack to continue a canceled restore or backup. My restore would have taken 5 days and the possibility of an interruption (e.g. short network disconnect) in this period is likely. Furthermore is duplicati lacking a parallelism feature which would make backups and restores way faster.
