Thanks for the reminder Jamie :)

My personal backup and restore testing regime uses rsync and a NAS:

  • everything that matters (family rule) goes on the NAS
  • twice daily: 'rsync --link-dest' copies, from NAS to local USB disk, holding 5 previous syncs to deal with the most common failure - human error :)
  • overnight 'rsync' to offsite archive (VM in Azure) for point in time recovery.
  • restore testing: regular file read runs on offsite (checksum generation)
