I’m starting to think I don’t really need a separate cloud backup solution (e.g. Backblaze). Takes too long, uses too much bandwidth, and I can’t “touch” the backups. Might move back to Chronosync and an external hard drive rotation.

@jackbaty Are you concerned at all about the offsite advantage? What if your house burns down?

@chartier I used to rotate drives offsite quarterly. If my house burns down losing a few months' files would probably be the least of my worries 😀. With Dropbox and iCloud the risk surface is even smaller
