creating a crpytdrive

kind of optional, since the backup itself is encrypted already - but i like to just encrypt my external drives, no matter what i want to do with it later. maybe you just want to add something else, for some reason?


xhost +local: # fix cannot open display
sudo gparted

sudo cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/sdX

sudo cryptsetup open /dev/sdb crypt

mkfs -t ext4 /dev/mapper/crypt 

sudo mkdir /mnt/backup/
sudo mount /dev/mapper/crypt /mnt/backup/

restic init

sudo mkdir /etc/restic/


export RESTIC_REPOSITORY=/mnt/backup/
export RESTIC_PASSWORD_COMMAND="pass servers_backupplatte_restic"
source /env/restic/env

cd /mnt/backup 
sudo --preserve-env restic init

bash: was backuppen

set -e

`set -x` enable xtrace - print commands
`set -e` exit on errors
`set -u` error on undefined variables
`set -o pipefail` error when piped commands fail
