Re: [PLUG] Encrypting Sensitive Personal Information In the Cloud?

I've used boxbackup on windows boxes in a corporate setting, albeit that was several years ago. it works ...well, just about as well as anything you'd expect to work on windows. the config's definitely easier than bacula. it doesn't do bare-metal restore (check out R1Soft/CDP if you need something cross-platform that does- it's commercial, it's a bit pricey, but it works well enough) but that can be remediated with some scripting and dumping the GPT/MBR tables and bootloader sectors  (since your partitioning scheme is highly unlikely to change in production).

I have not used any of these except BoxBackup, which I like a lot.
Basically, I sync critical data to BoxBackup at an offsite server I control
but don't necessarily trust 100%, and sync other data on that server to me.
Just watch out for the recovery key!

Slightly OT, but how well does Boxbackup work for Windows hosts?  Does
it support volume shadow copy?  I'm using Bacula but to be honest it
is clunky to say the least.

Sorry, no idea.  I don't trust Windows with any data I care enough about to backup.  :-)
