Starting an incremental backup while no files have changed results in the creation of an incremental-backup-file-set.
If this gets corrupted or deleted, can later increments still be recovered?
Is there a switch to tell duply to only really _do_ something if files have changed since the last backup?

    incrementals are later additions to the chain and can safely be removed manually on the backend.

    duply only manages switches of duplicity, hence you should ask there. but as far as i know there is no such thing.
    consider adding a question/featurerequest on
