Output of restic version

restic 0.7.2 (v0.7.2-0-g5b1e4df1)

How did you run restic exactly?

restic prune

What backend/server/service did you use?

sftp

Expected behavior

pruned repo

Actual behavior

12h so far of:

counting files in repo

Steps to reproduce the behavior

Have a large remote repo

Do you have any idea what may have caused this?

Do you have an idea how to solve the issue?

Some progress on the prune would be nice (if it cant be made faster.)

Huh, that's really odd. Between the line "counting files in repo" and the start of the progress output it really only lists the files in the backend. Is maybe the terminal output blocked? Can you try pressing ^Q (ctrl+Q)?

Or has the sftp connection stalled?

It really shouldn't take so much time.

So, I sadly think its a problem with restic over slow links.. I tried running prune locally but the RPI3 OOMed pretty quickly..

I've sadly had to give up on restic for now, trying borgbackup instead as it seems robust to over-the-internet backups.

But that's a different problem. We already know that restic needs a lot of memory right now (and we need to work on that), but what about the slow sftp connection?

I can understand if you don't have any interest to investigate further (and I'm happy you've found a backup solution that works for you), so feel free to close this issue.
