Dietpi-backup, remove dry run pls?

please can you make an option to skip dry run? I’ve removed that part from the script for myself, but everytime there is a update, it gets back…

as I’m backuping to the NAS, there is always space and thus I don’t need to have a dry run first. It takes ages on older rPI to get this done.


The dry-run is used to estimate the required disk space, but it isn’t precise for at least NFS mounts anyway: We add one block size for each file and directory to cover the worst case, but NFS reports some internal transfer block size, which is much larger, instead of the actual target filesystem’s block size. So yeah it might be feasible to allow disabling this, at least for NFS. When the backup fails, users will anyway want to get some free space and rerun, whether it failed during dry-run or actual sync.

would be superb! thank you so much!
