now i export all my containers to have a backup of the containers. i now use lxd in a btrfs subvolume instead of a loop device.
What would be the best way to backup all my containers without running to the 24 hours export limitation? I believe in the new version its 8 hours again by the way.
I dont have a second machine for lxd…
Also i must mention i read the article to for example rsync the /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd to external device. However for my running containers i have databases inside them.
And i am looking for a live backup (that everything keeps running)
Lets say i create a snapshot of /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd and rsync everything to an external hdd.
If i restore everything is it sufficient to reinstall host with lxd and rsync everyhing back to /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd ???
