Preface: this is not a whinge. It’s a comparison.
A couple of years ago i started looking at automated backup solution for my Linux and Windows boxes. I started with Duplicati, but that didn’t work out very well - though it is amazingly well featured and pretty easy to set up. Then i came here - but i struggled with finding answers to questions i didn’t know i had because they’re scattered all over the forum. I see that’s improved a lot with the green guide button.
I looked at Borg and found their documentation to be amazing - so i chose that for Linux to get moving and stop procrastinating. I learnt so much about backups just by reading the Borg doco.
Restic has similarly excellent documentation:
I’m still relying on Robocopy for Windows.
readthedocs seems like a really great way to organise and present doco. Is there any plan to invest the time and effort into it or something like it?
As well as that, areas in the GUI that offer commands or global thingies would be much easier if they linked to where this information is. Better still would be drop-down selections of the most commonly used ones (i’ve suggested that before).
p.s. i have zero affiliation with Borg, Restic or Readthedocs.io - despite my pimping
EDIT: It would be remiss of me, however, to overlook how great the community is in this forum. Borg has no forum!
So thanks to everyone here
