Backups

Last updated 3 months ago

Currently only use encrypted Time Machine backups.

But in future, I plan to start using Arq to make encrypted cloud backups in addition to Time Machine backups.

I love the fact that I can set up any new machine or phone to use my exact and perfect setup without any cruft in seconds.

Backup tools

  • Arq - Automatically backs up Macs and Windows PCs.

  • Restic - Fast, secure, efficient backup program.

Notes

  • Data that is not backed up is lost data.

  • Even the smallest file can take days to recreate.
