My workflow is as follows:
cd /path/to/my/local/folder git init git annex init git annex add myawesomefile git commit -m 'this works on my local repository' git annex initremote mybupbackuprepo type=bup encryption=none buprepo=/path/to/my/special/remote/location git annex sync git annex copy files --to mybupbackuprepo
Then I'm able to use my
special remote as I would use an additional repository.
But now I'd like to access my
bup repo without using the first, local repo (e.g. in case my local machine would break down). As far as I understood (from following the
official guide, the following should work:
cd /path/to/new/folder/to/extract/the/backup git init git annex init git annex initremote mybupbackuprepo type=bup encryption=none buprepo=/path/to/my/special/remote git annex enableremote mybupbackuprepo git annex sync
But I'm still not able to see any files (or even some broken symlinks) and, obviously, also not able to get any of my data when using
git annex sync --content or
git annex get myawesomefile.
Any ideas? What am I missing?
