I’m doing a mega-backup of 1.8 TB, the first one of this dataset, using the backblaze/b2 backend. It looks like it will take a total of 5 weeks due to the upload limit on my home connection. I’m currently about 2 weeks in. It looks like I will have to interrupt this backup as the system that’s doing it will need turning off/moving.
Looking at other, similar, questions on here, it looks like restic can pick up from where it left off, but I’m just wondering how this works behind the scenes. Would it show up as another snapshot? Should I just interrupt (i.e. Ctrl-C) the current backup process? Given the time investment it would be good to know what to expect.
Is there anything else I should do in preparation…?
Thanks in advance!
