Apologies for the lengthy question / first post. I am just about to set up my first OMV system on a G4560 with 8gb RAM and 3x3tb HDD for storage and a small 120gb m.2 drive for OS and I had a question about back ups.
I would like to be able to back up both the OS drive and data drives and would like to know the best and if possible simplest solution to do this. I have had a read through the forums and have seen many suggestions for both these topics. I do not think a RAID setup is necessary for my use case so will probably keep the drives separate.
From my research the best way to back up the OS drive is to use clonezilla. Please correct me if this is incorrect?
The data drives seem to have multiple solutions, rsync, usbbackup, clonezilla, external/internal drives and to be honest I am bit lost as to what the most suitable option is for me. Bearing in mind I am a new to OMV.
The storage will be used for photos, videos, audio and some documents, your general household stuff. Nothing life or death but things that I would be upset to lose.
I am happy to use one of the internal drives for back up and possibly an external drive as a third option less regularly to follow the 3-2-1 rule. I could also use a raspberry pi to setup a 2nd OMV system and use that as a backup point but would rather this be the last option unless there is a good argument for this being the best option given the above.
My main concern obviously is not losing the data on a drive should one fail, but bonus points for ease of use and ease of setting the system back up again should the worst happen.
Any and all advice or opinions welcome!
