I am also something of an Orphan from CrashPlan, although I had only just gotten started with it. In fact, that is how I found Duplicati. I was about to start a new post, and then I saw that CrashPlan was headlined in this thread. Before I go much further, please advise if I should start a new thread about the following, or proceed here, or if there is a better thread for me to tag onto.
The issue I wanted help with is not the same one that Sutex started here. The feature that was so intriguing to me about CrashPlan is that you could set up a remote backup site on a friend’s backup disk or NAS. This seemed like a great way to have more complete control of your remote backups, without using one of the standard Cloud backup solutions. My brother-in-law and I were planning to backup essential files to each others’ houses. The great thing about Crashplan was that they made this extremely easy to do. I think I should be able to do this also with Duplicati, but I’m unclear about what the setup procedure would be. I presume the remote computer would have to be setup to serve a secure ftp connection, or something similar, and I would setup Duplicati to backup to this. I was hoping someone will understand the intent and walk me through how to do this.
Should I start this as a new thread, or continue here?
