I’m using restic to backup our databases to an s3 compatible object storage bucket in the cloud. In most cases, the database is one single file, size > 10 GB.
As I’m backing up directly to the cloud over the internet, I’m thinking about what happens when the internet connection is suddenly dropped or interrupted during backup. What would you recommend as the most sure way to check if the backup was successful?
To start the backup, I’m running a “restic backup …” command: will this always return an error in such a case? Or do you recommend to add a “restic check …” command after the backup each time to be sure everything went fine?
Btw, my experiences with restic are really great so far! Using it on Windows Server machines from Powershell scripts.
Thanks in advance!
