So I have 140gigs worth of family photos and videos. I have unlimited storage with a domain. So I would like to use that storage to back up these files. I already have a local backup so now I would like a backup in the cloud. I have read on rsync and that seems the way I would like to go.
I will probably do something like
I'll probably need to run this for a while or stop it and continue. My concern is how rsync handles large files... if I stop the backup in the middle of a large file will I be able to just continue where it left off or will it restart? I'm hoping I don't have to be baby sit too much. Should I always run rsync with --partial?
rsync -e 'ssh -p 1234' -azv /directory/blahblah firstname.lastname@example.org:/directory/blahblah
Advice? Thanks in advance.
