Re: Tarsnap de-dup - one machine or all?

If you are using the same key from the previous machine then they may be
de-duped as the commmand you are running has access to the previous

Each key is unique in a way that it should never have access to another
machines data.

Make sense ?

The fact that there's a Highway to Hell but only a Stairway to Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic volume.
