I’ve been using Deja Dup successfully for about 6 months on Marjaro with Gnome desktop. My last good backup was 25 days ago, because an external disk was disconnected. ( obviously, I don’t pay too much attention. There isn’t a lot I need on this system - yet. ).
So I reconnected the disk, and the system began to lock-up. I finally traced it to Deja-Dup using all the available memory - 64gigs. I can watch Deja-dup ( duplicity ) via system monitor just take all the memory until the system stops during Deja’s “preparation”.
It doesn’t seem to be able to crash and leave any logs or errors, and I can’t tell if the debug logs say anything. I also don’t see a lot of info while googling.
What direction should I start trouble-shooting in? My current backup setting is just my home dir about 99gigs.
