Automated backup

Final Word

All the code for this project is available on GitHub [3], so you don't have to write the described scripts from scratch. In fact, the repository contains a dedicated installer script that can help you transform a Raspberry Pi into a small mobile backup device in no time. Of course, the solution described in the article is not limited to Raspberry Pi or any other SBC: With a few simple tweaks, you can adapt the scripts to work on any Linux machine. This way, you can use your regular laptop for unattended photo backup or transform an old netbook into a dedicated backup station.
