    On my server are 4432 files named as duplicity-full.20200903T091524Z.volXXXX.difftar.gpg
    duplicity != Back in Time. You need to start with explaining what you actually used.

    Looking at the Software Management screen on my machine, I see that I have Back-in-Time installed and I do NOT have duplicity installed.

    The settings in BiT show I had a weekly backup scheduled and each week I got a pop up little window reminding me that the backup had been done.

    I assume I am using BiT but at this point I'm willing to accept anything.

    I wonder if I install duplicity, would it recognize the backup that (I assume) was made by BiT?

    At this point, I have reconstructed everything on this machine except for one directory and that contains a bunch of stuff I would dearly like to have.

    Because BiT came from the openSUSE repository, seemed plenty smooth in the interface while setting it up, gave me a weekly notice and I could see the files in the backup directory on my server, I figured everything was as it should be. Now that I need those files, I can't get to them.

    It is with a considerable amount of embarrassment and humility that I went on a wild goose chase and dragged you guys into it. Seems that after 80 years of wandering around this old planet, I'm not as sharp as I once was.

    arvidjaar led me on the right path by pointing out the filename contained duplicity. I didn't make the connection because the GUI interface shows Backup instead of dejavu and I obviously associated the program with Back-in-Time. I didn't have duplicity installed because I had done a fresh install and had not installed it. (DUH) However, I obviously had it installed previously. After installing duplicity and dejaxu on my new system, it was able to recognize the backup it had made and I was able to recover the data I needed, albeit with some effort.

    Thank you all for your efforts in helping me out with this mess!

    What is it? I am aware of Déjà Dup, which is GUI frontend to duplicity.

    It's a typo!

    The only way you'll restore both files and permissions is to use the Back in Time app, so you shouldn't just copy files back to their original locations.
