How to backup your notes?


You can keep your notes under Dropbox etc.

Git (GitHub)

If you want to backup your notes, we recommend to use git :-) and keep your notes as you keep you source code and commit changes and push it to your private (so no one can read it ) repository. For private repositories you can use GitHub but you have to pay.


You can how your notes always online!

Borg (to a remote machine or external drive)

You can use Borg. Borg (BorgBackup) is a deduplicating backup program. Optionally, it supports compression and authenticated encryption.

Use something like this:

export BORG_PASSPHRASE='<you secret password>'
export BORG_REPO="malibu:~/notes" # where malibu is a remove machine

borg init malibu:~/notes

borg create -v --stats  malibu:~/notes::{now} ~/geekbook/notes
# remove your old backups notes
borg prune --list -v $BORG_REPO --keep-daily=7 --keep-weekly=4 --keep-monthly=6

make a bash script and add it to your crontab:

@hourly ~/bin/notes-backup.sh

Borg is way more complex than this. Read please Borg.
