Channel Version Published

Fast, secure, efficient backup program.

"Restic is a program that does backups right. The design goals are :

  • Easy: Doing backups should be a frictionless process.
  • Fast: Backing up your data with restic should only be limited by your

network or hard disk bandwidth.

  • Verifiable: Much more important than backup is restore, so restic

enables you to easily verify that all data can be restored.

  • Secure: Restic uses cryptography to guarantee confidentiality and

integrity of your data. The location the backup data is stored is assumed not to be a trusted environment.

  • Efficient: With the growth of data, additional snapshots should

only take the storage of the actual increment.

  • Free: restic is free software and licensed under the

BSD 2-Clause License and actively developed on GitHub."

NOTE - I maintain and support the snap package only. The upstream developer(s) can be reached at their main [GitHub]( page.
