How do folder paths work for deletions in online accounts?

Post by IMTheNachoMan »

I am backing data up to BackBlaze B2. My left/right sides are:
  • Left-Hand Side = /home/nacho
  • Right-Hand Side = ext://my-bucket-name/nacho
I want deleted files to be created in: ext://my-bucket-name/trash, and I want the source folder structure re-created.

This is what the help text says:
Example for valid paths when using an Internet Protocol

\Archive ( archive folder in root folder )
.\Archive ( archive folder in profile's base folder )
..\Archive ( archive folder one level higher )
Archive ( archive folder is created in every subfolder where a file has to be deleted )
What is the difference in "archive folder in root folder" and "archive folder in profile's base folder"? What exactly is root folder? What does "profile's base folder" mean?

I also want older version of files to be created in ext://my-bucket-name/older and I want the source folder structure re-created, but I can't figure out what settings to use in the Versioning tab to make this happen.

Hello,
the base folder is nacho, and the root folder is just the bucket itself.

So you should specify the path like this:

/trash

Backslash like in the help should work also, but a forward slash fits more the way the Internet URLs are written.

Likewise, the older folder can be specified as:

/older
