How to backup with Grsync

In this video, I cover backing up data or the full system using Grsync, the Graphical front end of Rsync. In the coming videos, I am going also to explore Rsync from the terminal.

How to backup with Rsync from the terminal

In this video, I cover backing up data or the full system using Rsync from Terminal. There will be two scenarios is this video. One, a backup to an external drive and the second one will be on an external server via SSH.

Combining Rsync with Crontab: pt. 1

In this video, we combine the rsync command from the previous video with the Crontab scheduler to produce personalized backups. In the next video, we’re going to cover also rsync with SSH and Crontab.

Combining Rsync with Crontab pt.2

In this video, we combine the rsync command with SSH from the previous video with the Crontab scheduler to produce personalized backups on an external server.

Backup and restore with Back in time

In this video, we’re looking at Back In Time as a backup solution for your personal files and home directory. We’ll install the program from the AUR, backup the Home directory and restore it with a snapshot. Back In Time is usually used to back up personal files rather than system files.

Backup and restore with Timeshift

In this video, we’re looking at Timeshift as a backup solution for your system. We’ll install the program from the AUR, backup the Home directory, the system and restore them. Timeshift is usually used to back up the system files rather than files and folders.

Backup and restore with Duplicati

In this video, we’re looking at the Duplicati backup solution for backing up your files and folders. We’ll install the service, backup the Home directory and restore it.

In this video I am going to show you how you can restore your machine from dotfiles you have on GitLab or GitHub (or another repository). In this case, it is going to be from my dotfiles of the i3 window manager. Dotfiles: https://gitlab.com/eflinux/main-deskt…

Cron scheduler and Rsync

In this video, I am going to talk about two of my favorite tools in Linux: cron and rsync. Cron is a job scheduler and rsync is used mostly as a powerful backup tool.
