Backups with restic
You should use it for backing up many small files that change often, for example system configuration or source code. For most other files (like media files, books or documents) it makes more sense to just use Vup directly, for example with the sync feature.
For using restic with Vup, you need to set up rclone first.
Follow the instructions here: https://restic.readthedocs.io/en/stable/020_installation.html
Create a new restic repository to back up your files
restic -r rclone:vup:PATH init in your terminal.
restic -r rclone:vup:backup/my-device init
Backup some files
restic -r rclone:vupdebug:backup/my-device backup PATHS_YOU_WANT_TO_BACKUP
restic -r rclone:vupdebug:backup/my-device backup /home/redsolver/Documents
Mount and browse your backups
restic -r rclone:vup:backup/my-device mount MOUNTPOINT in your terminal
restic -r rclone:vup:backup/my-device mount /mnt/backups (you have to create the
MOUNTPOINT directory first)
