thank you for your elaborate answer. I’m totally in line with your plans for an RClone GUI.
Make it approachable and empower anyone to easily backup their data.
And with this, in the first steps we should focus on the simplicity of the process for novice users.
Something along the lines of:
• storage config
Review and iterate on workflows, iron out the kinks and advance from there.
• drag and drop
• bucket handling
• automation / schedule backup / cron / services
• backup sets
We should discuss the approach of being data centric vs. being storage centric.
I think novice users would focus more on their data, while advanced users may be more centric about storage space. By data centric I think of users that don’t want to manage their data. They just want to have it back when they need it. While from personal experience, people who tend to manage their data manually they often are more storage centric.
We need not choose one approach, we could implement multiple.
Please let me know how you think about it. This is in direct reply to Gelsas, but please, everybody feel free to comment.
