    I recently had my first ever hard drive failure and have since been looking into off-site backups. There are many choices to look through for off-site backups: what software should I use? What storage provider? This post describes how I set up Duplicacy and Wasabi as my off-site backups solution. Duplicacy is a backup tool written in Go. It supports many back ends including Wasabi, a fast, S3-compatible cloud storage provider. Wasabi offers great pricing that allows you to easily calculate how much it will cost to back up your data. However, combining the two isn’t very clear due to lacking documentation. You’ll leave this post with an understanding of how to set up an off-site backups repository using these two tools.
