I’m backing up several workstations to a local drive containing one restic repo. Each workstation+datatype combo has a different hostname+tag. After backing up, some of the machines are powered down again.
What I would like to do is then tell my local restic repo to send any snapshot using a certain tag, to a remote restic repo on B2. Both restic repos would be unique, thus have different encryption keys, histories, passwords, etc. I’d like to keep the repos unique to improve data integrity; If my local repo corrupts for some reason, I wouldn’t want the corruption duplicated via rclone.
Does restic offer a native command for such a thing? If not, would it be acceptably fast to simply mount a snapshot, then backup the mount to the B2? I know I can just run backup a second time, and keep the machines powered on longer. But if possible, I’d like to avoid that.
Any ideas or suggestions?
