Can you understand this error?

Thanks!

yes, your backup was saved to
/var/folders/rq/4852x6xj5cvbl8btlr9tnf9r0000gn/T/odrive-config-388537523437.json
but it is trying to restore from
/var/folders/rq/4852x6xj5cvbl8btlr9tnf9r0000gn/T/odrive-config-20603599524B.json

you have to provide a file name, or it will only us its own serial number’s filename.
for example:
odrivetool backup-config myconfig.json
odrivetool restore-config myconfig.json

Hi! thanks for your answer, can you tel me how to restore from the backup folder?

Thanks!

Yes like this:
odrivetool restore-config path-to-backup-file.json

I just try ,odrivetool restore-config path-to-backup-file.json

is create this error;
