[Solved]Pause/resume a Restic backup job? Recover/resume from a crash?

I’m on Ubuntu 21.04 on a 1 month old Ryzen 7 gaming laptop. Running Restic backup.

I looked thru the 0.12 Restic command list and didn’t see how to pause/resume a Restic backup. Any way to do that?

I’m now doing my initial Restic backup (only 21 hrs left). I’m backing up 1TB of user files to an external USB connected spinning hard drive. What happens to this backup if my computer crashes? Any way to resume/recover a Restic backup from a crash?

I read the section. Perfect. Thanks. Good that Restic has these features. Could you mark this topic as resolved?

Happy to help. I might start using restic myself!
