Ideas Backup ALL


Respected Member
Instead of having to type every single container name, type ALL in caps and it does all the containers? Simple improvement

This is not ideal because Plex and emby could be insanely big and if a user doesn't pay attention, your box can run out of space.
The backup files get zipped and uploaded to GDrive I thought? Where would the user face running out of space?

Then the solution is instead of typing "ALL", the user has to type "ALL-YES-I-AM-PAYING-ATTENTION-AND-KNOW-I-CAN-RUN-OUT-OF-SPACE". ;)

Really, though, not sure how forcing a user to type everything in negates that risk. Without that solution, I just do the (double-click, ctrl-c, ctrl-v, return) loop until I'm finished. Still annoying, but less annoying than typing.

Well, it's not really unknown. As a safeguard, it could do a "du -hs /opt/appdata" to see the maximum size. Plus, I don't think anyone's asking for the command to do the entire directory as a single tar - just hoping to save some typing. Pretty sure it serializes the process anyway when one types it all out.
