Script duplicacy-utils - TheBestPessimist

Could someone help me to resolve an issue?

I'm testing duplicacy with this script:

It works as it should. However when running the prune command, it creates a file in the directory of the log and appends the results of the execution of the command to the backup command log.

In detail: .duplicacy/logs contains the folder "2018-05-08 Tuesday" with the file "backup-log 2018-05-08 22-41-37_636614160976437318.log". It displays the log about "Now executting duplicacy.exe -log backup -stats -threads 10 -vss" and "Now executting duplicacy.exe -log prune -keep 0:90"

.duplicacy/logs contains besides the above folder also the file "prune-log-20180508-224141" which is empty. This is "normal" because the content is added to the file "backup-log 2018-05-08 22-41-37_636614160976437318.log".

I'm not sure if an empty prune log is normal. The prune log file is generated by Duplicacy internally and can't be redirected

Thank you. It seems that the "problem" is linked to duplicacy:
