Uses chroot to pretend for restic that the latest snapshot is actually the whole filesystem.
Restic can then create its backup snapshot in peace while the live file system can change without any conflicts.
All orchestrated by systemd timer and service unit.
Sounds pretty neat! Could perhaps learn something for my own backup solution.
A really nice overview and somewhat in-depth explanation of setting up a nice backup system with restic and systemd. Written exclusively for btrfs I am not sure why, since most of the instructions should work with most any underlying filesystem.
A backup solution for Nextcloud (although you still provide the storage ;) as an actual Nextcloud application.
I don't know why I didn't think of this so far.
Restic still definitely has an edge in encryption/deduplication and advanced feature set but this seems way easier to get going - and moves as one coherent package with your Nextcloud instance (i.e. it backs itself up).
You can set repetitions for full and partial backups (in days and times, and only on weekend if desired), and it will automatically put your instance in maintenance mode (so no DB corruption) do its pass, release maintenance mode and do all the compression/splitting/uploading then, so there's as little down-time as necessary.
Seems well thought out, if possibly a little early in development!
A unix-only de-duplicating backup system. It is managed for you, encrypted and so on but also strictly tied (afaik) to the tarsnap 'service' - that means you can't just use your own object storage or similar like with e.g. restic.
