restic−stats − Scan the repository and show basic statistics
restic stats [flags] [snapshot−ID]
The "stats" command walks one or all snapshots in a repository and accumulates statistics about the data stored therein. It reports on the number of unique files and their sizes, according to one of the counting modes as given by the −−mode flag.
If no snapshot is specified, all snapshots will be considered. Some modes make more sense over just a single snapshot, while others are useful across all snapshots, depending on what you are trying to calculate.
The modes are:
restore−size: (default) Counts the size of the restored files.
files−by−contents: Counts total size of files, where a file is considered unique if it has unique contents.
raw−data: Counts the size of blobs in the repository, regardless of how many files reference them.
blobs−per−file: A combination of files−by−contents and raw−data.
Refer to the online manual for more details about each mode.
