I have been using Synthing for a while for backing up and syncing data within my network between several devices. Therefore encryption has not been necessary to use.
I am trying to create a backup of some personal files from my NAS on an external NAS which belongs to a friend.
I plan to backup several folders on my NAS with the following settings -send only, in order the achive a backup -encryption via password in synthing, since I won’t have full control of the data there -My friend’s NAS running Synthing of course, he would do the necessary on his side during setup
I want to have this backup in case of my NAS becoming completly unusable for me (NAS being stolen, burnt down, apocalypse so to say). My question is, how would I be able the restore the data in an event like this. Could I access and decrypt the data somehow?
I do not have any experience setting up my syncthing settings after a crash. I guess I would need to restore it? If so, any tips on how to back up the necessary system data?
