A recent thread got me to thinking about backups and disaster recovery plans. Wondering what my fellow Manjaroos do.
Here is mine:
Timeshift: Daily (keep 3), Weekly (keep 1) Monthly (keep 1), and Boot (keep 1), stored on my HDD.
Rsync to my NAS: Documents (daily), entire system (weekly), via cron/anacron.
Also weekly: Docs, pics, and music synced to a flash drive stored in a fire-resistant safe. As well, I evaluate my docs and determine what are the items that I absolutely cannot lose. I copy all that to a temp folder, “tar.gz” it, encrypt it to myself and asymmetrically encrypt it, then upload that file to:
Google Drive, iCloud, dropbox, MSN, and my ISP. yes, I have my GPG private key backed up ( I won’t go into the details of that, other than to say I even have printed copies of the key).
So what do you think? Overboard, or am I ready if I fat-finger a dd command?
