Expected there to be a temporary fileset for synthetic filelist #2506
Duplicati Version: 188.8.131.52
I got this error when I run an Backup.
Steps to reproduce
Actual result: Describe here what happens after you run the steps above (i.e. the buggy behaviour)
The "synthetic filelist" is created after a backup has been interrupted.
In a special case, this new synthetic filelist is somehow marked as not being synthetic, causing the warning you see.
I run Now Verify and get this result:
This means all is okay!?
Sorry that i ask But these are My timemachine Backup :-)
How do we clear this error message? I did a Verify and I think everything checks out (see below)... but still I get this error message every time Duplicati does a backup.
I suspect OP problem arises from passing a fileset ID into a routine expecting a volume ID, thereby making a synthetic filelist warning about a January dlist when it's actually May then. Fileset ID probably aims low when applied to the larger Remotevolume table. Its semi-random select also finds non-dlist files, as explained here.
Fixing the code might just need passing in the right type of ID, however I don't know how much actual usage the synthetic filelist code has gotten (given this bug which often prevents its run), so it requires some testing.
