Duplicati Backup Software


At home I’ve been wrestling with what to do for computer backups now that my CrashPlan service is coming to a close (they are phasing out their consumer plan).

I think I’ve found my solution — Duplicati 2.0.

From their website:

  • Duplicati is free software and open source. You can use Duplicati for free even for commercial purposes.
  • Duplicati works with standard protocols like FTP, SSH, WebDAV as well as popular services like Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive & S3, Google Drive, box.com, Mega, hubiC and many others.
  • Backup files and folders with strong AES-256 encryption.
  • Save space with incremental backups and data deduplication.
  • Run backups on any machine through the web-based interface or via command line interface.
  • Duplicati has a built-in scheduler and auto-updater.

So far I’m very impressed. I’m backing up to an unRAID server I’ve built and it’s working flawlessly.
