Backup to a remote webdav server using rclone / 2020-07-30

2020-07-30 Backup to a remote webdav server using rclone 1 week ago
After the earlier issues with backing up to a remote webdav server I let the problem rest but made sure my backups were in order from time to time.

Until I came across a mention about rclone which especially mentions copying to various cloud services. Since I am trying to backup to a webdav server based on owncloud I had a look and this is a supported configuration in rclone. So I installed rclone to give it a try.

From the devuan distribution I got rclone version 1.35 which seemed to have problems with the specific owncloud server. So I had a look and newer .deb packages are available on the Rclone download page. This worked better.

On the first run rclone was convinced a lot of the files were modified locally since I transfered them with fusedav+rsync, so those were refreshed. But now it is all synchronized correctly the changes are minimal and the runtime isn't very long. I do make sure my uplink isn't filled completely so I limit the bandwidth. Command:
$ rclone --bwlimit 1M -v sync /camera/ owncloudservice:backuptest/camera/
