I just had my first week at university (Applied computer science). I started with noting everything on paper but I already had bought the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga to transition to taking notes with the stylus on the touchscreen. Next week I want to note everything digitally, I think there are numerous advantages over plain paper.
I plan to use OneNote2016 to take notes. The Windows Store App of OneNote is just a hell of limited/stripped down version of the original one. OneNote2016 allows to locally save the notebooks and such, I don’t want to put it all on OneDrive. I wanted more control over my notes and (semi) automatic backups.
First I tried the “native” Google Drive Backup & Sync but it didn’t work properly, then I tried Cloudberry but that also failed after some tries.
Then I found Duplicati over https://alternativeto.net/ .
What I like about Duplicati:
- actively in development
- the UI (better than Cloudberry)
- it works flawlessy
- so much options, especially the smart backup feature and the custom one (which I will definitively have some fun with)
- the thoughts that went in the disaster recovery scenarios (I read the docs)
So I guess this is a perfect hit. Thanks guys!
One question though (which I won’t open a new topic for):
If the backup files were downloaded from Google Drive, they could be used locally to restore saved files from, right?
