Title: Long trem backup
Post by: Nowinbob on May 16, 2019, 09:28:35 am
OS agnostic topic:I am using a 2 TB external HDD,Ext4,to back up data.Is there a utility that will check the integrity of the backup files,especially the ones that have never been accessed?I can use my peppermint laptop to do this,but my Mint tower would be a lot faster.I have over a TB of backup files.

It allows to take snapshots of all the major configuration files, binaries as well as libraries stats. And helps to find which binaries have been changed in case of compromisation of the system.
