I use restic to backup my home linux server, and in the future I intend to add a few laptop homedrives. I have a wasabi and a 10tb usb disk repository. Ive automated the backups from the linux server with a systemd service and timer. So all seems good. Daily backup to cloud, hourly to the usb disk.
My issue is it seems a little silly to be managing two independant repos. I’d have thought it would make more send to backup to the local usb, then as part of the prune process, copy the daily from the usb to the cloud.
Can I improve my setup?
I can see others are just syncing their local repo to the cloud.
I like the idea that I might sync my laptop to the cloud because it’s always there, where as the local disk is only accessible on the local network. So it’s not always going to be disk > usb disk > cloud
I’d want to automate the solution, preferably with systemd.
