Backup Feedback

For any backup, the user should be able to do the following:

  • See the progress
  • Cancel the backup

For an automatic backup, the user should additionally be able to do the following:

  • Know that the backup is occurring
  • Postpone the backup
  • Skip the backup

How this happens depends on which environment is detected. We'll support the following:

  • Unity
  • GNOME Shell
  • GNOME Classic


If Unity is running, a launcher icon should always appear during a backup. This launcher will overlay the progress directly. It will have the following context menu items:

  1. "Resume Later" (or "Delay Backup" if resume support is not found in duplicity)
  2. "Skip Backup"

Clicking the launcher should present a progress dialog.
