Common options

Archive filters — Archive filters can be applied to repository targets.
  -a PATTERN, --match-archives PATTERN only consider archive names matching the pattern. see “borg help match-archives”.
  --sort-by KEYS Comma-separated list of sorting keys; valid keys are: timestamp, name, id; default is: timestamp
  --first N consider first N archives after other filters were applied
  --last N consider last N archives after other filters were applied


This command displays detailed information about the specified archive.

Please note that the deduplicated sizes of the individual archives do not add up to the deduplicated size of the repository (“all archives”), because the two are meaning different things:

This archive / deduplicated size = amount of data stored ONLY for this archive = unique chunks of this archive. All archives / deduplicated size = amount of data stored in the repo = all chunks in the repository.
