I’m new to Restic. Is it possible or practical to store the snapshot delta changes in an AWS S3 bucket? I intend to run Restic several times a day to gather snapshots and was wondering if there was a good way to back this up to the cloud on AWS S3? Of course, I don’t want to transfer and store a separate copy of the entire backup each time to AWS S3.
Yep, S3 is supported out of the box, you can just
init a repository there and start the
backup process as often as you want. Restic only sends what changed since the last backup and some metadata. In short, it works the way you’d expect it. See: Preparing a new repository — restic 0.14.0 documentation
