Amazon S3 Backup Restore Help

Was not sure if i need this posted here or in setup.

I have a running box and everything is working perfect but i’m wanting to test restore. i followed the instructions setup a 2nd server

ran curl -s | sudo bash

then entered all the information for sudo mailinabox

then attempted restore from Amazon S3 Backup via

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=paste your AWS access key ID here
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=paste your AWS secret access key here
export PASSPHRASE=$(cat your_backup_secret_key_file.txt)
sudo -E duplicity restore s3:// /home/user-data/

but i get: Restore destination directory /home/user-data already exists.

am i suppose to not have ran sudo mailinabox on the new server?

You can either: 1) delete the /home/user-data on 2nd server and rerun, or 2) run with the --force flag, like:
sudo -E duplicity restore --force s3://.....
