Tutorial : Backup your Chrome OS Crostini Container to a remote server
Shared with: Public, Keith I Myers, Joseph Cappellino+1’d by: Carl Draper, Vito VizziatoJoseph Cappellino – 2018-09-17 17:19:47-0400At first, I thought you were talking about some magical way to “dump” the container and put that file on a server. That would be awesome. But, I’m sure much more difficult.Keith I Myers – 2018-09-17 17:23:58-0400+Joseph Cappellino that is not impossible but would result in much larger backup files and longer backups in general. Rsync is perfect, especially for those on limited or slow connections as each backup after the first should take a few minutes vs hoursJoseph Cappellino – 2018-09-17 18:24:53-0400+Keith I Myers – Agreed. I was just thinking of the “I can transfer the entire VM to another Chromebook, and keep them in sync.” Obviously, the performance of all of that would depend on how large you keep the container. Also, not sure how well ChromeOS would handle a new application suddenly appearing. Hopefully, it would just be monitoring the file system, and things would “magically” appear.
Come to think of it, this might actually be plausible, especially if the container is exactly the same across devices. Would be interesting to play around with.
