Bug Description

I am keeping a backup with no password. I checked it once (by restoring) and it seems it worked.
I do this because my PC is not encrypted either, and because I never could remember the password of my first backup, which made it useless.

After backup, periodically, deja-dup proposes to test the backup, and asks for a password. However, there does not seem to be a way to enter an empty password there, is it normal? Or do I have somewhere another encrypted backup which is confusing deja-dup (and me?) (It does not seem so, I only am using one backup directory.) So I can never test (except by doing a full restore)

I've tested locally and couldn't reproduce. In my tests, it tested the backup without asking for a password.

Do the files in your backup location end in .gpg or .gz? This will tell us whether the files are encrypted or not, respectively.

Changed in deja-dup:
