Backup Linux Server

Hi there, I’m a newbie on Linux and I had DigitalOcean backups to restore when I broke things.

Now I’ve moved to another VPS and I’d like to know if I could do the same backup/restore using rclone beta.

I’ve read as much as possible on the beta development of the --backup feature but I’m a bit stuck.

How would you create a cron job to backup your machine (Ubuntu Server 16.04)?

How would you restore a backup?
