For 8 TB of data storage on Google Drive, plus my own Google organization, I am paying £30/month, which is a pretty good deal.
I wanted to use this space for backing up my NAS, but it was proving difficult. The program I was recommended for Linux backup, Duplicati, was not the best for this purpose. My backup runs would not complete, they would be slow, and full of syncing errors.
Until I discovered rclone.
rclone was much better than Duplicati at backing up my NAS to Google Drive.
This is the script I use to sync the NAS content to Google Drive: https://github.com/wordswords/dotfiles/blob/568a8768154de8609a01b26560373ec5ca0eab85/bin/rclone-backup.sh
It works just like rsync, but with a progress indicator. I’ve added it to my crontab and it syncs everything up weekly.
