I did install rclone on my Synology NAS. My intention is to make a script run every X days, automatically, so the NAS can perform backups to the cloud constantly without me needing to run the commands myself.
I have 2 main concerns while implementing this:
1- I don’t want to leave my passwords unencrypted on the rclone config files, for security reasons. This means that rclone asks password for every command given. How can my script run every X days without the need for me to explicitly write a password in my script?
2 - If I configure the script to run X days, this might be problematic in case rclone still didn’t finish another previous backup. How to be sure that my script will only run rclone if another instance of rclone is not already running.
Hope someone can give me good insights on that.
Thanks for your attention!
