  • BorgBackup

    Deduplicating archiver with compression and authenticated encryption.

    If the repository wasn't created with encryption, it might be possibly, however you may have better luck asking for help on Github -- for example this issue mentions a way to at least try to get it in a state where you can run --repair on it. You may first want to read through Borg's Data structures and file formats documentation to gain at least some understanding on what each of those missing files do. And under no circumstances operate on the only copy of the data you have left - make a copy somewhere and experiment on the copy!
