Free is great. I love free software and use it as much as possible. Sometimes I donate to projects that really make a substantial difference to me.
Duplicati is one of those programs. It has allowed me to continue daily backups after CrashPlan ended its Home program. I’ve been able to back up several computers to encrypted storage, over an encrypted channel (SFTP). Daily backups take only a few minutes and don’t noticeably affect performance. And Duplicati auto-purges old backup files.
I reinstalled the OS on one machine and was able to get it to recognize the old backups with no problem. I even ran into an issue with apparent database corruption and was able to recover it.
It’s been great. But I can’t donate via PayPal because the link at https://www.duplicati.com/donate/#paypal uses Google’s URL shortener, which has been retired. Can someone fix the link?
