Iam a totaly newbee with urbackup.
It looks very intesting to me as it not using network shares on the client side so ransom viruses should have a hard time when trying to destroy backups.
But I have also problems and questions.
I have read that Image Backups are onyl recommended for the boot drive for the other drives filebackup is recommended. Why?
I installed the server on a proxmox virtualised machine running debian buster my backup strore is an nfs share.
I am testing with a win 10 virtualised client.
That didn’t work good at first. I had to set firewall exceptions and defendee exceptions first. Otherwise backups didn’t complete and failed.
What I didn’t understand is how to schedule backups. For instance I want to run an incremental image Backup every day except on friday. On friday a complete imagebackup should run. All backups should start an 10.00 pm. They should be kept for two weeks and then the oldest should be deleted.
I have no idea how to set this up. Am I missing documentation? Please tell me what I should read or please give me an example.
Another question I have regards the setup of the client. I don’t want filebased backups. Is it ok to set the schedules in the client to 0?
Some times the server does not start a backup when I try to start it from the client. I can’ figure out why.
A lot of questions thank you very much for ylour help!
