Last week my personal worst case scenario happened:
The SD-Card of my Raspberry Pi 3b+ was corrupted. The Freedombox became unusable and I wasn’t able to recover it because the backups didn’t contain the users I created.
This made me think about a hassle-free disaster recovery solution. How difficult would it be to realize following use case?
- Create regular full system backups automatically once a day / week (i. e. using Timeshift)
- In case of SD-Card failure:
- use a Desktop PC to flash new SD-Card with latest Backup
- insert new SD-Card into Freedombox and boot again
No new installation and configuration. Just recover the last working snapshot and continue working.
Is this a feasible scenario?
