In this presentation I will cover two multi-platform, open-source backup tools (dar and borg) that I've been using for many years. I will combine them both into a single bash function that will keep multiple copies of your data, switch between two methods for redundancy, with a simple option for an off-site backup on a remote Linux server, and provide a simple mechanism for restoring your data. Both tools support incremental backup, compression, encryption, and -- equally important -- write to a sensible number of archive files that you can easily move around, e.g., to switch to a new backup drive, or to use a low-capacity USB drive for an incremental backup of a much larger filesystem.
This is an online webinar. Connection instructions will be emailed to all registrants.
