plakar create command creates a new plakar repository.
the repository is created in
with compression and encryption enabled.
Compression can be disabled with the
but it is advised to leave it enabled:
its overhead is insignificant and there’s no point in setting up a deduplicated repository and not using compression in the first place.
Encryption is also quite cheap however,
there are cases where it’s desirable to run a cleartext repository.
In such cases,
-no-encryption option can be used.
plakar [on /path/to/directory] create [-no-encryption] [-no-compression]
The repository is created with encryption and compression enabled in
~/.plakar by default:
$ plakar create
A repository without encryption can be created as such:
$ plakar create -no-encryption
An alternate path may be provided as such:
$ plakar on ~/plakars/myplakar create -no-encryption
