I am using pgadmin v4.22 to backup and restore a database. This works fine the first time, but when I want to restore it again to a backup with deleting the old data, pgAdmin seems to ignore the
Clean before restore setting. I end up with multiple identical entries.
This is what I am doing:
Right click on the database, and click on
Then I select myBackup.backup and set Role name to postgres.
In the Restore options tab I activate:
Sections: Data Queries: Clean before restore
When clicking on restore, it succeeds in about 1.5 seconds for a 9 MB backup. This is the log:
pg_restore: connecting to database for restore pg_restore: implied data-only restore pg_restore: processing data for table "public.myTable" pg_restore: executing SEQUENCE SET some_number_seq
It does not mention any clean step. When I query the database I have identical entries now.
