Using the Raspberry Pi as a backup server


UrBackup by no means represents a perfect solution. However, the service is an uncomplicated and practical system for backing up data in the home setting. Once installed, it usually requires no further attention. The costs for the necessary equipment, a Rasp Pi and an external hard drive, are very reasonable.

Regular backups are a good idea. Threats associated with viruses and Trojans should be taken seriously, even under Linux. Moreover, no magic charms can counteract hardware defects or accidental deletes, even for Linux users.
