    Project mention: How does rsync deals with linux permissions if a backup is done from a linux filesystem partition to a ntfs partition? | | 2022-08-11

    Consider using a proper backup tool such as BorgBackup that is capable of retaining permissions and extended attributes while also encrypting the backup even while storing it on a NTFS volume.

  • s3cmd

    Official s3cmd repo -- Command line tool for managing Amazon S3 and CloudFront services

    Project mention: How does everyone backup their servers? | | 2021-10-26

    I have a cronjob that runs hourly which creates a tarball and then uses s3cmd to push files to Amazon S3. It also removes local backups that are older than 3 hours old, and retention policy removes S3 backups older than 7 days old.

  • Back In Time

    Project mention: I broke my system and I want to reinstall it but without losing /home | | 2022-08-12

    If it's on another partition and you select that partition during installation, it should be OK. However, always make a backup of your Home folder/partition to an external drive. I recommend using Back In Time.

    Project mention: What do you use to backup all your computers? | | 2022-08-10

    Same here. I also configure borg withborgmatic. Hetzner’s 1TB per 3.50€ is a bargain

  • pghoard

    PostgreSQL® backup and restore service

    Project mention: Future PostgreSQL: improvement to the replication protocol | | 2022-01-13

    This story starts with our own PgHoard, a PITR backup tool for PostgreSQL. PgHoard offers several methods to archive the WAL (Write Ahead Log), including pg_receivewal, a small application shipping with PostgreSQL which connects to a PostgreSQL cluster using the physical replication protocol to stream WAL as they are produced, optionally keeping track of the position on the server using a replication slot.

  • shallow-backup

    Project mention: Is there a way to save system preferences? | | 2022-08-14


  • RedditDownloader

    Scrapes Reddit to download media of your choice.

    Project mention: Does pushshift or any other archiver save any pictures or thumbnails from reddit posts? | | 2021-10-15

    Like it depends on what they are using to scrape the subreddit the two I ran across yesterday ripme and Reddit Media Downloader both only run when called so it would be highly unlikely those would pick it up because they'd have to be called within the few seconds it was available.

  • Rdiff-backup

    Reverse differential backup tool, over a network or locally.

    Project mention: rsnapshot-like rotation backup tool to integrate in my scripts | | 2022-07-31

    I use rdiff-backup for a similar usecase. Maybe you find it also useful.

  • django-dbbackup

    Management commands to help backup and restore your project database and media files

    Project mention: Project for power companies - I might have bit more than I can chew | | 2022-08-04

    And finally backups, this part is really important. When I was a beginner, I used to make silly mistakes which would lead me having to reset the entire database and rebuild. With backups you can simply restore back to a working point in time whenever something goes wrong. The django-dbbackup package can do this for you, however, you may run into a few issues which can be fixed. Or you could simply use PostgreSQL database dumps.

  • backy2

    backy2: Deduplicating block based backup software for ceph/rbd, image files and devices

    Project mention: Advice on backing up a Ceph cluster | | 2021-08-17

    I've been a DataHoarder for a while, but only a modest ~10TB or so. I finally had the space to set up a rack and some servers, and am setting up a Ceph cluster with a ton of old disks I've accumulated over the years, totaling upwards of 20TB. I would like to still have an offsite and preferably offline backup for this data though, but backing up 20+ TB of data to a single drive is obviously off the table. Is there any other alternative to just deploying another Ceph cluster offsite? I don't want to use cloud storage due to the costs, and I also very much prefer to keep all my data under my own physical control. I was looking at Backy2 for the actual extraction of data and writing it to a destination, but that doesn't seem to support idempotent writes (i.e. take one full object and place it on a single drive). I could theoretically combine drives via LVM, but without additional redundancy (I would probably use raid 1 for that) losing one drive would be disastrous, and I am trying to avoid having to add additional redundancy for backups, considering the main ceph cluster will already have 3 copies of the data on it. I also am wondering if I should avoid using Ceph for the backups, since then all my eggs would be in the Ceph basket so to speak. I would love some advice from some of the folks with larger hoards and how you make backups. Thank you!
