Backup to Azure fails with code 403

Dewoller     Jun 8 7:41PM 2018 CLI

Hi Gilbert and fellow Duplicacy fans

I am backing up 200gb from linux duplicacy version 2.10 (the downloaded binary) to an azure blob using the following command:

sudo duplicacy backup -threads 10

I randomly get the following message after an at least an hour of backing up.

storage: service returned error: StatusCode=403, ErrorCode=AuthenticationFailed, ErrorMessage= Server failed to authenticate the request. Make sure the value of Authorization header is formed correctly including the signature.

I hope you can help. This software looks amazing, I am very happy with your work.

Sincerely Dennis

This looks exactly like https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-go/issues/1005

So maybe the solution is to rewrite the backend using https://github.com/azure/azure-storage-blob-go.

Backups have been fine for a while, and then I got an odd error during a roughly 30 minute backup (at the tail end):

01:17:10 Uploaded chunk 3591 size 12502342, 11.96MB/s 00:00:02 99.8%

This looks the same to me as what was originally reported. Maybe, before you change the entire backend, you should consider retrying this at least a few times?

Let me know your thoughts, thanks.
