The year 2019 is not the year for my hard drives. First my "big" 1TB drives crashes containing lots of data. And yesterday my drive containing /home crashes.

@iah Sorry to hear about the rolling data disaster. This is one reason people are attracted to , I suppose. But that's not worth the lock-in and surveillance.

SyncThing is a pretty good point-and-relax sync + backup system, that works with whatever local or remote storeys you have.

@bignose thanks! But yeah I got some cloud services backing up important data, encrypted before transmitted so they can't spy on me. I have never used syncthing though. Anything worth checking out?

@trawzified luckily I have backups. 👍 Ordered a couple of new disks.
