💩 Niklas What's your setup for personal backups? I've just started using restic on an old HDD I found, still looking for a good (cheap) SSD to buy. I think I should use at least two hard drives for backups, maybe even do some fancy RAID... By the way, this post serves as a REMINDER TO DO YOUR BACKUPS!
🦝 Wojciech I keep my important data on my personal NextCloud, which is on a RAID1 (with an SSD cache), and then every week a backup is made using borgbackup, stored on a server at my university, which also has RAID1. The backup is encrypted so I don't worry about other people accessing it.

💩 Niklas That sounds very reasonable, thumbs up! :) Are you running the NextCloud server from your home/university and if from home, is it accessible (to you) from the internet?
🦝 Wojciech The NextCloud is at home (therefore, the backup at uni is in a different location, physically, so, bonus points :D). We have a public IP (it was free and I think we didn't even have to ask), so it is accessible from the internet. (The "server" is a budget Ryzen 3 based PC sitting in a wardrobe, because Ryzens are quite power efficient.)
🗨️ Fui Well, thanks for the reminder! I'm another borg backup user, using it behind its Vorta gui. I backup weekly or so to an external HDD. So yours was a good reminder to get on with that.
