Register for ‘B2 Cloud Storage’ at backblaze.com
Create a B2 bucket with the name SPIREBUCKET, note the ID and KEY
Download Restic from github.com/restic more info at restic.net
Make a new folder on your Desktop lets call it Backup
Rename download to restic.exe and place in Backup folder.
Create a batch file in the Backup folder, lets name it mybackup.cmd and open it with Notepad
restic backup C:\ProgramData\Spire\Snapshots
restic ls latest
When you run the mybackup.cmd you might get access denied. To gain access to C:\ProgramData\Spire\Snapshots you must Run as Administrator. Right click mybackup.cmd choose Run as Administrator.
restic init – You only need to run this once to initialise the restic repository on B2. If you run it again it will complain “Already Initialised” but is otherwise harmless. You may REM it out to if you like.
restic backup C:\ProgramData\Spire\Snapshots – Does the backup to B2
restic ls latest – displays a listing of your latest backup in the cloud
Backblaze does not charge for the first 10GB of storage. If your backup exceeds 10GB they will charge you the overage and it’s dirt cheap.
Remember: If you neglect to restore and verify then – “You don’t have a backup.”
Finally use Task Scheduler to run mybackup.cmd nightly.
