  • How do you handle the backing-up of all data when self-hosting?
    rclone.org into a cheap but reliable cloud solution (in my case backblaze.com) as someone else already said, there is no 'set it and forget it' backup, but a decently monitored script with some alert only when things go wrong comes close. You can fully encrypt client side, the cloud provider doesn't even see as much as filenames - and it is easy to restore files back to any system you can get an rclone client for.

  • Does anyone else here know Internxt ? Anyone using it?
    Maybe you could also use rclone (with crypt) and just mount the drive as a drive on your computers. It's a lot easier to use when compared to manually encrypting and decrypting each file\directory manually when you need to access it.

  • Have I missed Joplin Notes integration/ "destination" in the RocketBook App?
    1-Scan to RocketBook mobile app, then make my destination be Google Drive (obviously there are other options, but I'm already a Drive user). 2-I sync my Google Drive Rocketbook folder with a local folder using RClone and a cron job. You could use a different Cloud (OneNote), and in my case the destination is just temporary, as once RClone runs it cleans out the destination. 3-I use the Joplin Hot Folder plugin to watch the synced folder. New notes that I brought down from Drive come in as PDFs and these are added as notes into Joplin.

    I don't claim to have tried everything or done exhaustive studies, but I've found that to communicate from my computer to my VPS, WebDAV is the fastest. I just use rclone to serve it and communicate. The biggest downside is that it does not support ModTime. See #3147 which documents that.
