As of version 0.39.0, FreedomBox now includes a Backups feature. The Backups feature is built using the "borgbackup" Debian package. Borg is a deduplicating and compressing backup program. It is designed for efficient and secure backups. This backups feature can be used to selectively backup data on an app-by-app basis. Thus, the Backups menu prompts users with a checklist of the apps whose data they want to backup. Users can select any number of apps to back up, from one to all. Note, however, that not all apps generate personal data, so not all apps will be listed in the backups menu. For your reference, the status report below lists the apps for which no backups are needed. As of version 0.39, FreedomBox now includes a Backups feature.

Backups

As of version 0.39, FreedomBox now includes a Backups feature. The Backups feature is built using the "borgbackup" Debian package. Borg is a deduplicating and compressing backup program. It is designed for efficient and secure backups. This backups feature can be used to selectively backup data on an app-by-app basis. Thus, the Backups menu prompts users with a checklist of the apps whose data they want to backup. Users can select any number of apps to back up, from one to all. Note, however, that not all apps generate personal data, so not all apps will be listed in the backups menu. For your reference, the status report below lists the apps for which no backups are needed.

As the Backups feature is currently still in development, it can only backup data for a limited number of FreedomBox apps. We are working on offering backup support for every app in the FreedomBox system.
