One of the more frustrating things over the winter has been trying to make sure to keep my raspberry pi up to date and backed up. Well fortunately, the community agreed and provided a script that allows a Pi to back its self up.
With a bit of modification a spare Pi and a 2GB SD card I created a ‘build server’.
Once setup this Pi updates itself and backups every day to a CIFS network share.
The effort has already paid for itself in rebuild time for new projects.
