    Fast, secure, efficient backup program

    I'm currently struggling to come up with a good data integrity check for my backups. I am using [restic](https://restic.net/) (which has a lot of the same features as borg) as a backup engine. It already includes [integrity and consistency checks](https://restic.readthedocs.io/en/stable/045_working_with_repos.html#checking-integrity-and-consistency) but I feel like the described `check` command still leaves room for silently corrupted data, even with its `--read-data` flag : the integrity seems to be checked against hashes of already-packed data, but what if something happened during the packing process ?
