Is anyone using kopia for backup? I am wondering how reliable it is. After getting burned by duplicati I am wary of newer backup solutions.
I have a pretty comprehensive backup strategy today but I feel like there is a weakness. My cloud backups. Today I am replicating my encrypted borg backups to the cloud using rclone. While this works fine, it introduces a risk. If something bad happens to my local borg repo, that would get replicated to my cloud copy.
My objective is to retain my local borg repo but do a completely separate backup directly the cloud. I was originally thinking of using restic. But kopia also looks interesting.
True. For such data, there is no single backup solution, you always need multiple technologies.
For my needs, I have a really primitive solution, but I think quite effective. The really important data, which is unlikely to ever change, but must under all circumstances be preserved (tier 3, as I call it), I burn it to DVDs and give copies of it to a few trusted friends and family members for safe keeping.
I am a bit older than most of you here (40 in hexadecimal). When I started with computing in 1986 or so a teacher in a course said: One backup is no backup (It was in German: Ein Backup ist kein Backup). I never forgot this. That’s the reason I don’t believe you are paranoid. You may imagine that I also have much more than a single backup of my data.
Thanks, I will plan to setup Kopia for a cloud backup without root permission and systemd timer. It has nice policy UI which has schedule configuration.
I let restic for a weekly root backup in my other dual disks in my local.
