🤔 Is there any automated Android backup solution you know?
I am totally willing to pay for that service, as long as the client is FOSS and encrypts my data in a good manner.
Most importantly I want to backup the data on my internal storage, so files, images, videos as my Calendar, Mail, Contacts are IMAP/ICAL anyways.
Would be awesome if you could help me to find something like that!
@switchingsocial Wow that is crazy how many replys I got in such a short time! Thanks for all your help. I will try the nextcloud setup and report how that did work out.
@jlelse yes, pictures and videos can by automatically synced with our Android app. Calendars and contacts via CardDav/CalDav. There is a SMS backup app and many more, see apps.nextcloud.com. Other stuff would be possible if someone would write a app for it, e.g. Nextcloud also has a key-value storage where settings could be stored.
@l1am0 @switchingsocial I haven't even found a manual solution yet-- I tried oandbackup, but afaict everything except nandroid doesn't work. I'd love to see any kind of non-nandroid working backup for android, because not everyone has twrp working, and automation would be nice too, to not have to worry about it!
@l1am0 Syncthing on Android has drastically improved over the past year or so. Might be worth looking into it again.
@l1am0 No, unless you write a bash script to do so. I'm just manually using it from time to time to backup all of /sdcard
See https://github.com/ravenschade/borgbackup_on_android for more details on how to use it.
