Backup my notebook with Restic

Daniel Nashed  23 April 2023 14:49:40
Restic Backup is a very easy to setup tool, providing different targets.
In my case I just back up to an external disk.

You can see the first backup takes quite a while. But incremental backups will only backup new and changed files into the new snapshot.
Here is an example of a first and additional snapshot.

In contrast to Borg Backup, Restic supports VSS snapshots on Windows, which makes it work nicely with Domino 12.0.2 VSS Writer support.

My demo at Engage will include Restic. Because I have demoed Veeam backup and Borg Backup already a couple of times.

You will see how nicely Restic and Domino integrate. And how good the dedup and compression works.
