i’m currently planing how i want to recover my data and backups with storj and wanted to know, how you guys do it. My current backup strategy:
- Every important file is stored in my own seafile cloud server hosted on a dedicated machine
- The whole seafile-cloud server is backed up daily with restic (encrypted) on the seafile server
- The restic backup is then pushed to storj/tardigrade
The issue is… all my keys and passwords to the encrypted restic repositories, and also the access grants of storj/tardigrade are stored in keypass… which itself are stored on my seafile cloud.
So when s*it hits the fan (i have to flee the country, or i loose my seafile cloud server and my laptop with my keypass file), all my data is securely backed up in storj, but i can’t access it because i don’t have the passwords.
I thought about printing out the access grant and restic passwords and storing it at a safe place. But everyone who sees the paper has access to all my data.
Or another issue: What if i just hit my head and forget the password to the keypass file? Everything i store is encrypted and i would loose all data.
I’d like to hear how you solve that issue.
