Just starting to check out Restic and I was wondering why you didn't use the "rclone+restic" integration as noted in the Rclone documentation, instead of taking the backup with Restic first, then separately using Rclone to upload the backup files to the cloud?
well, i have a script that runs all my backups.
for each backup, it creates vss snapshot and executes a list of command against that source.
so restic is just another app, such as 7za, fastcopy and rclone.
rclone and restic are very flexible, many ways to get it done.
