Re: [Duplicity-talk] Can a first (full) backup be stopped mid-way, then continued?

From reading those bug reports, my understanding is that the volume created which isn't full is assumed to be (under scp), so some files are not backed up correctly.
I have checked my destination directory, and there is indeed a load of ~25MB files, along with the last volume which is ~3MB.
If I simply started Duplicity again, but using a different protocol like rsync explicitly, would this fix the issue and erase and begin uploading this volume file again?
Or to obtain a correct first full backup should I erase all files and start all over again?

No - the resume functionality doesn't work properly yet for ssh/scp.
If you interrupt a backup and then continue it - it won't produce a
usable backup you can restore from (although it won't give you any
errors either during the backup process).
Please see these two bugs on the topic:
