Build a Raspberry Pi-based backup device

Final Word

I've described two ways to transform a Raspberry Pi into a backup device. With some creative thinking and hacking, you can easily tweak and improve the described recipes, for example, by writing a script that processes the transferred photos and publishes them on the web. Also, you can configure Raspberry Pi to send email notification when the backup operation has completed. All code and files mentioned in this article ares available on GitHub [3].
