The problem

Following #558, this PR allow to specify that, for a file, the backup process can continue if the file is missing.
The same argument has to be added to the restore command to ignore it as well.


Simply ignore the file during the backup and the restore process, and do not fail.

PR Status

Tested on a VM.
Can be reviewed.

How to test

Add the argument in the backup and restore script for a file.
Replace the helper, and remove a file used during the backup.
