Backup file with Kopia and Rclone to Storj

Because of Storj lack of support MOVE, check it out here: https://kopia.discourse.group/t/experimenting-with-rclone/304/5

Step 1 Setup personal S3 compatible bucket on Storj

Therefore, for the best compatibility, I configured bucket with my own custom passphrase with S3 compatible Access Key with the same custom passphrase.

Step 2, Setup Rclone with S3 compatible target and mount it.

rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode writes storj-s3:jp4 /mnt/storj-s3 --daemon --allow-non-empty

Step 3, Setup kopia backup file to local file system

https://kopia.io/docs/repositories/#local-storage

# Setup kopia backup on your local machine
kopia repository create filesystem --path /root/tmp-backup-server/

# Connect to kopia repo
kopia repository connect filesystem --path /root/tmp-backup-server/

Check Kopia current status

Create Kopia snapshot and sync Rclone to Storj


# https://kopia.io/docs/getting-started/#creating-initial-snapshot

kopia snapshot create /data/wwwroot
rclone sync /root/tmp-backup-server/ storj-s3:jp4/kopia -v -c

Grep repository with Unique ID and mount

mkdir /tmp/mnt

## Grep snapshot ID and mount
kopia mount $(kopia snapshot list | tail -1 |awk '{print $4}') /tmp/mnt &

# Cd into directory
cd /tmp/mnt

Kopia delete snapshot

## List all snapshot
kopia snapshot list -m
