Re: [Duplicity-talk] --name option seems to duplicate cache

Take a look at the dates on the folders.  I'm betting that the unnamed one was from a previous backup, perhaps where you forgot to use the --name option.  These things happen.

It would be safe to delete the oldest one, then rename the one left to it's proper name.

I've been running backup jobs using the --name option to name the backup job.
It seems to cause duplicate caches to be stored.

In ~/.cache/duplicity I have two very large cache folders, one named like the --name argument (backup-bs4)
and another which looks like the default hash.

Here's the output from 'du'.

3546680    ./backup-bs4
3546680    ./e952a7af5edba92fcb0dd67cd4e58a7b

At 3.5 gig each, I'd like to eliminate at least one of them!
I will likely remove the --name option, but thought I should report the issue.

Thanks for any input, -Ken-
