  • rclone

    "rsync for cloud storage" - Google Drive, S3, Dropbox, Backblaze B2, One Drive, Swift, Hubic, Wasabi, Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blob, Azure Files, Yandex Files

  • Says that Apple doesn't provide a multi platform API. It doesn't provide any official supported way to access iCloud from Windows, Linux.

    There's a ticket covering everything you might ever want to know:

  • my-backup-plan

    How I back up all my data.

  • Every time I see this pop up on HN, I upvote. I've been using rclone for years for my main backup [1] (now over 18 TB) from my home NAS to Amazon S3 Glacier-backed Deep Archive, and it is by far the easiest backup setup I've ever had (and cheap—like $16/month).

  • restic

    Fast, secure, efficient backup program

  • Duplicacy

    A new generation cloud backup tool

  • rclone-webui-react

    A full fledged UI for the rclone cloud sync tool

  • There is a built in web GUI (experimental),band I also found the RcloneBrowser project that looks helpful when a GUI is handy.

  • unison

    Unison file synchronizer (by bcpierce00)

  • You might want to try Unison: https://github.com/bcpierce00/unison

  • resticprofile

    Configuration profiles manager and scheduler for restic backup

  • The main disadvantage with pure Restic is that you usually have to end up writing your own shell scripts for some configuration management because Restic itself has none of that.

    Fortunately there is https://github.com/creativeprojects/resticprofile to solve that problem.

  • gphotos-sync

    Google Photos and Albums backup with Google Photos Library API

  • Sadly, it’s not configurable. It’s just an inherent limitation of the API (1). Takeout is the best alternative, but for something more realtime you can use tools (2) that wrap the browser UI which also exports full quality.

  • docker-gphotos-sync

    A Docker image for synchronizing your original-quality Google Photos

  • Sadly, it’s not configurable. It’s just an inherent limitation of the API (1). Takeout is the best alternative, but for something more realtime you can use tools (2) that wrap the browser UI which also exports full quality.

  • borgmatic

    Simple, configuration-driven backup software for servers and workstations

  • - for important files, a separate box where I have borgmatic [1] in deduplication mode installed; this is updated once in a while

    Just curious: Do you have any reason to believe that such a data corruption bug is likely in ZFS? It seems like saying that ext4 could have a bug and you should also store stuff on NTFS, just in case (which I think does not make sense..).

  • sshfs

    Discontinued A network filesystem client to connect to SSH servers

  • > It's replaced sshfs for some cases.

    I'd been using sshfs for some years until I learned that rclone can mount remotes to the file system, and I've been using that happily since then.

    https://rclone.org/commands/rclone_mount/

    > at present SSHFS does not have any active, regular contributors, and there are a number of known issues

  • ccViewer

    CryptCloudViewer source codes

  • i tried using it to encrypt my cloud backups, and it works great for desktop, even if it requires running commands.

    my gripe with it is to be able to use and sync from my smartphone. at least on ios, there is no robust tool that allows it afaik. there is cryptcloudviewer (https://github.com/lithium0003/ccViewer) which has not been updated since 2020.

    appreciate any suggestions or more details of your workflow for these scenarios.
