One of my VPS providers gave a week’s notice he was closing down the VPS service. Previously this would have caused panic. This time, since I already had a script to backup to tar, I used it with restic and B2 to backup the 1GB VPS in about 5 minutes. Job Done!
Thanks devs, especially for the third-party connectivity, B2 in my case. I find I’m often impressed at the thoughful design and structure of the product. What could have been a pita turned out to be as simple to do as my local backups.
