Backing up to a LOCAL storage

I understand that the adress used is to connect via FTP and other protocols to a remote storage, but how do i go about backing up to a dir on my local machine?

(CLI version)

Is it (somehting)://user@localmachinename/path/to/backup/dir

or is it like something://user@192.168.1.(local)/path/to/dir

and do i need to setup an FTP server on my local machine

im new to linux so dont hit me this is probably a simple question

Take a look at the “Local disk” part of the Guide:

yeah, im an idiot, sorry. :confused:
