Restic backup

Was asked quite a few times how I do my backups with Restic.

For more than 10 years I was using “Duplicity” forĀ backups, but in 2019 I changed to Restic. The main reason for the change was that Duplicity still can’t handle “Big Data”, as in: larger directories. In 2009 someone opened an issue on the Duplicity bugtracker, and this problem still exists as of today. For about two years I was shifting around the problem, excluding files, trying to make the sigfile smaller. But at some point I decided that it is enough and I need to change the tool.
