Thanks for responding.
I am still thinking of the "sneakernet" use case where there is no
networking to use for backup.
It does NOT backup or restore the journal.
(It will restore to a new unchanged script created USB. (I am still
testing). This would be useful if
the overlay got corrupted or full..
The deja-dup functionality is neat:
• Support for local or remote backup locations, including Amazon S3
• Securely encrypts and compresses your data
• Incrementally backs up, letting you restore from any particular backup
• Schedules regular backups"
I have "sugarized" it so that it is listed in the f3 ring as an icon.
The next step is to try to make it into a .xo bundle.
Thanks for the link.
deja-dup seems to requireit be used on the same version of Soas.iso
ie: cannot restore RC3 to a RC2 soas stick.
Does not seem to work with f12 Blueberry. (I installed it but get errors
Seems to require the backup USB (fat32) to be paired with a specific stick.
still testing...: )
