I run duplicity daily with --full-if-older-than 1W, and it displays counts and 
sizes for new, deleted and changed files and indicates when it is doing a full

are bigger than I expected) and wonder, which files caused the statistics.

Is there a way to see what files were added, deleted, and changed (and maybe 
their sizes or size changes) in the latest (or some earlier) increment, either 
by adding some option(s) to the backup command or using a separate command 
after the backup is complete? I've read the duplicity man page and other 
documentation and haven't seen a way to do this (although I might have missed 
it).  I tried adding --verbosity 5, which did include the information I'm 
looking for, but it also produced hundreds of lines additional output that I 
found useless.

hey Peter,

although the necessary informations are contained in the incremental there is 
currently unfortunately no command to list them specifically.

regards.. ede/duply.net

In that case, please consider this a feature request 😁.

You could use grep or a similar tool to filter the output of '--verbosity 5' 
and extract those lines that list the added/deleted/modified files. Off the top 
of my head, something like grep '^[ADM] ' should do it.

but that goes for the backup log only and not after or?
