    I'm no UPS expert, but is it "healthy"?
    Blackouts are an easy task, but spikes from events like thunderstorms or network issues are unpredictable, although an UPS should manage it!

    I had a similar experience in the past when I was a kid and didn't had a UPS.
    Spikes like these can break your entire system and you're probably aware of this, but sometimes I've seen corrupted partitions/mbr during similar events.

    lol I actually forgot I made this lonely post.

    I figured out that Rsync is not the ideal candidate.
    I played a lot with Borgbackuup which is perfect for this purpose, then wrote extensive guide here.

    Instead of using a poll interval, I prefer to schedule Watchtower to update containers when I want to do so during a quiet period.

    Purtroppo non so darti una risposta precisa.

    Yes, me too. Actually I didn't know it existed in the first place. I'm sure I have seen it listed in the plug-ins but didn't have a clue what it was and ignored it. Funny when you discover something you didn't know you needed.

    In general, I usually say the "Downloader" plugins have not been ported to OMV 5.x. The funny part is that the only plugin with downloader in the name is the only one that has been ported. RE: Why should you use or not use

    That's funny. I thought it was discontinued, maybe got confused with the transmission plugin.
    Only by reading this thread I discovered it's still alive :)

    I would recommend this Docker container which has a GUI for youtube-dl, the best video downloader out, not only from Youtube.

    This GUI has customizable options and you can select MP3 output. I think is the best option and you don't have to rely on shady…

    Per questo motivo gli chiedevo come era installato; personalmente uso Docker già da OMV4.

    Non esiste più il plugin da OMV5 e sinceramente non si dovrebbe più usare OMV4.

    Ti consiglio di imparare l'approccio di Docker, è molto più facile installare e configurare le applicazioni.

    I guess we should stick with fsarchiver, both of us confirmed works very well. Borg isn't really made for this purpose.

    Borg/the plugin backs up the root file system, which you can specify if not detected automatically.
    I also believe the logic that picks up this file system is built in the plugin itself, in fact fsarchiver works fine.

    I discovered that

    Both my real system and this VM are MBR, but just by mistake.
    In the future I will redo everything in UEFI.

    So, here are the steps:
    • Mount the filesystem where backup is located
    • Restore partition table with the following command:

    Hi,

    I am testing borgbackup as backup method in openmediavault-backup plugin. I've been using fsarchiver but I wanted something more efficient.
