Trying to create an experience as simple as the 'Time Machine' functionality for my RPi3 running Stretch.
I'd like to have a few options if possible.
- Creating a backup to a sufficient capacity disk with incremental changes, as they are made in the system.
- Possibly do this to a remote location on a NAS, or remote network location.
- Have all this create an IMG file I can use later to restore the SD card if recovery is needed.
- Being able to maintain backups of machine while it's running
The primary goal is simplicity and successful functionality.
I understand that system files will be changing all the time, and a lot, and it wouldn't be practical to be overwhelming the backup system to maintain these changes, so is there a practical way to maintain easy accessible backup of everything else?
I guess i am looking for successful backup stories to hopefully determine whats easiest and most worry free for my setup.
"Essentially I'd like to be able to custom config a system the way I like, then from there (or even while developing the better) create a backup that would be 'no-brainer' simple to recover if needed."
