      Borg + rsync

      restic to b2.

      borg to vps.

      and important (not very personal/private) docs are anyway always saved in Dropbox folder that is also included in both the backups mentioned above.

      Thank you all very much! Borg looks good.

      @Devil What are the main differences between restic and borg? Looks like they are the same, but restic can backup to some other places not limited to ssh/local storage?

      main differences between restic and borg

      Yes, restic is more convenient and it has never thrown an error on me ever whenever I have tried, unlike Borg :smiley:

      I can use restic to b2 and pay only as much I use (in fact for a long time I was paying nothing as storage was below 10GB and transfers and other calls were within free limit) and it supports some other block storages too. Borg doesn't and for that I had to set it up on my VPS which I am not really very comfortable with. Reasons being I neither have the patience, nor time to learn and then use that skill to strengthen that VPS.

      But if your data can be compressed a lot then you might rather want borg. Or if the data is really a lot then maybe go for something like Backblaze (just my recommendation).

      A google result will fetch you detailed answers unlike mine :)

      PS. Whatever backup you do, keep testing its integrity (try with real restore of random files from random snapshots/versions) once every few months at least. Bit rot and other shit are real. Happy backing up :)
