First post, weee.


Any idea why I'm getting this error.  The folder does exist.


ERROR: backup /mnt/user/Private/ localhost/ - Source directory \
"/mnt/user/Private/" doesn't exist

Because you don't understand how volume bind mounts work in docker?


Always post the docker run command if you want help.

I have edited rsnapshot.conf and crontabs/root in the appdata directory as follows and then restarted the docker, but the cron does not seem to get started. I do not see any snapshots being created so far. Is there anything else that needs to be done?


# do daily/weekly/monthly maintenance
# min   hour    day     month   weekday command
*/15    *       *       *       *       run-parts /etc/periodic/15min
0       *       *       *       *       run-parts /etc/periodic/hourly
0       2       *       *       *       run-parts /etc/periodic/daily

# rsnapshot examples

30      4       *       *       *       rsnapshot beta
30      23      *       *       0       rsnapshot gamma

The configuration should trigger alpha backups every 2h, beta backups daily at 4:30am and gamma backups weekly on Sunday evening (23:30).
