Odrive CLI backup



Is any documentation available for the CLI backup command?

How can I tell progress? Or that it’s working at all?


Hi @aodocs-storage,
Here are a couple of relvant posts on the CLI backup feature:

As said above, its an early beta of backup functionality, so its pretty bare-bones. There is a log for backup in ~/.odrive-agent/log/backup.log and the status CLI command will give some basic overview info, like if the backup is running.


On Windows, where is the backup.log? The one stored in c:\Users<username>.odrive\log is size zero.

% odrive status returns

odrive Make Cloud Storage THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

How can I tell what those 2 backup jobs are, and can I stop/cancel them?


Hi @a_user_of_this_tool,
You can get the backup info with the status --backup command. You can remove backups using the removebackup command.
