  • Need to copy/clone/backup
    Rclone if you need to clone data is fantastic tool. For backup software, look at Duplicati or duplicacy, which has dedup and compression features. - Source: Reddit / 5 days ago
  • Question about syncing hard drives from 2 locations
    For an example program, look at duplicacy, - Source: Reddit / 6 days ago
  • File corruption still an issue?
    Those backups themselves are encrypted before being stored in the cloud. I personally use Arq, but any modern backup solution will probably work, like Borg, Restic, Duplicacy or even Kopia if you’re feeling brave :-). - Source: Reddit / 25 days ago
  • Anyone else using Kopia and Backblaze B2?
    b) Look at it yourself. Commits happen but mostly as clean up while there are a lot issues listed. Alternatives none... Maybe expect but their ui is payed. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Help me choose between borg, restic and rclone
    But if you want to skip the rclone and go straight to backing up to a cloud provider take a look at Duplicacy. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Online Backup Storage within Canada/US?
    I am not sure about hetzner alternative in US/Canada. I personally use Duplicacy to backup to backup my data to a local NAS and offload it to Backblaze B2. It works great and it is not that expensive. Might be helpful: - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • duplicati has crossed me for the last time; looking for other recovery options to back up my system and docker containers (databases + configs)
    I like the oddly similarly named Duplicacy. Wide range of cloud and local targets supported. Good deduplication across multiple clients. Web GUI and command line available. Source code available. Technically not "free" software, though. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • The Arq data format is open (ish). Has anybody managed to edit their backup plan configs?
    Duplicacy has de-dupe between computers. Not as polished as Arq and a bit slower. Never quite trusted it as much as Arq 4 and Arq 7. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Should I back up to my own servers or continue to use Wasabi?
    Sorry just realized I was recommending the wrong program. Duplicacy is what I meant to recommend. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • What is your backup setup?
    I use Duplicacy to make nightly backups to an external hard drive and to Backblaze B2. I also make daily automatic backups of my server's configuration files to my laptop just in case. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Looking for cloud storage with a physical back up combo...
    I am using Duplicacy on Windows, but they have version for Mac. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Duplicati vs ARQ Backup, worth giving arq another try (on windows)?
    That said...I am currently using Duplicacy, which I REALLY like. It has a browser based interface, but I like how it backs up and restores, I prefer it over Arq. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Setting up a 30TB or larger NAS for my bugout vehicle - needs to operate in ambient temperatures above 60C and with extreme vibrations. Thoughts?
    I used to just use rsync but now I use Duplicacy running in docker. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • What is the best method of creating a backup of a RAID 1 setup?
    What NAS are you looking to setup? For example, Synology has Active Backup. If it's some DIY NAS that you have connected to your PC, there are various options: Veeam Free Agent for Windows/Linux:, Duplicacy:, Macrium reflect: You'll just need to point backup software to your NAS files. Also,... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Is it only me or abb for linux is awful?
    You might want to try testing Veeam Agent for Linux Free to get a sense of how it works, though I would think your use case would require you to buy a license for your client. I've also heard good things about Duplicacy versus borg, restic, duplicati and other command-line backup software, though I never actually tried any of them. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • How do I back up all my data from my laptop to an external hard drive?
    As already mentioned, Robocopy is a decent option. Another way is Veeam free Agent for Windows:, Duplicati: or Duplicacy (free CLI version): The last two can also backup to cloud. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • What should i use to backup my files?
    Also on Windows/Mac/Linux you can get Duplicacy, which is free for personal use as long as you use the CLI version (UI is free for restores and checks). - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Duplicati and other backup tools
    Duplicati is in perpetual beta. Instead, look at BorgBackup and Duplicacy. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • is this a good idea to upgrade my storage system?
    So, a SSD is a primary storage device, while HDD is an on-site backup medium. That makes perfect sense. Actually, cloud is totally unnecessary, it is good to consider only if you are about to build a whatever-proof system. It is not expensive anyway, so might be good to back your data up to cloud sometimes. You could use stuff like rclone ( or duplicacy ( to automate... - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Kopia vs Arq
    I tried Duplicacy during (and along side) Arq's v6 fiasco; paid for it. It worked well - as intended - but it's not Arq. I've got four places I'm backing up to with Arq (testing Storj for one of these), one immutable, and it-just-works. I don't have to worry about it. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Kopia vs Arq
    Kopia is shaping up to be a great piece of software, but as long as there is no stable version, you probably shouldn’t entrust it with your only backup. If you’re looking for Kopia like deduplication and cloud connectivity, take a look at Duplicacy , which is also stable and tested. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
