My goal: Set up a “structure” that does a few things as seamlessly and automatically as possible.
- I use an external drive as my “primary and physical” backup device. This would be where ALL my stuff sitting on my laptop would back up to using something like Macrium Reflect that runs on a preconfigured backup schedule.
- From there, I’d like to sync to a cloud service, so every time a backup finishes there will immediately be a “cloud copy” (insurance in case laptop/external drive is stolen, house burns down, flood). This would be my “redundant” encrypted offsite backup.
How (at what stage) would I add in CM where it makes the most sense? I’m not new to CM, just have not set it up this way. And it has to be a reasonably simple, automated process.
My initial thought is that everything I want encrypted needs to be accessed via Cryptomator FIRST from my laptop, then everything follows from there – but I’d like the collective expertise of this community to point out any potential flaws or gaps. As a way of testing my plan, I imagine of my laptop and ext drive were destroyed in a fire, what would be the steps to recover everything.
