Hello, I have an ovh dedicated server with the free 500GB backup box. It says you can FTP to that space etc... I don't want to install a GUI (I am a windows person for the most part) . What I was hoping is that someone here does this already and I would not have to go search to far for the wheel.

What are you wanting to backup and from where? You could potentially do it from command line, use fxp from an FTP client that supports server to server or use rclone.

This isn't really a better option than what plexguide already offers with regards to backup options. Plexguide backs up to your GDrive. For all intents and purposes, this is essentially the same as backing up to FTP since you will want to TAR up the contents locally first before FTP'ing over. Have you tried the native backup option in PG?

What I wanted to do or accomplish is to image my machine and the have it ready to push over to an upgraded box, second reason is so I can have a fast image ready to be redeployed if I loose my box.

I agree with you and I didn’t explain myself that well. I want an image, like a clone zilla of the box. In Windows I used to utilize ghost or rapid deploy. Have my boot options set correctly in our DHCP server. It anything was wrong I would pixi boot off the network and restoration the machine in 30 min. The high overview is to have a quick and easy re-imaging Option.

thats gonna be difficult to do. You might be able to boot to hetzner's rescue cd and use something like partclone but what would prob be easier is if your provider has the option to attach a usb hdd or thumbdrive to your host. You'll need to know how much backup space you need as well. at the ssh prompt do df -h to see partition sizes and amount free/used.

I know from your posts recently you have had issues with restoring etc. but generally if you follow the process, it’s pretty straight forward to get a new box up and running in minutes, not hours.

At the very least go to sudo PG, vault, and kick off a full backup to ensure it can complete successfully. If your low on disk space, clear out your downloads that are on the local disk first.
