I’m looking for any good resources to back up Ubuntu to my drive account using Duplicati. I’ve done a few searches but haven’t found any in great detail that isn’t using the UI. Would love to see an DO article on this subject if possible.

That sounds like a good idea. Short of using Google API calls, I’m not aware of a solution for this. But you might look at the zapier website:

…I haven’t tried it. They have a free account and then a $20 paid account with some more features. If you get it working, please reply here describing your experience.

@Robert303 I do have Zapier but didn’t know DO and available “zaps” for them, I’ll look into it.

I did actually figure out a way to do this that was somewhat simple to do using rclone using this guide.

Works really well too.

  • Hey, I just came across rclone a minute ago and was coming here to mention it, but I see you already know about it! :) Glad to hear it wasn’t too hard to setup, I’m going to look into using it also, thx for reply.
