In general it's sufficient to backup your raspberryonce a week and keep a given number of backups. If you want to keep a longer history of your backups - i.e. use an intelligent backup strategy - use raspiBackup with a wrapperscript. That way you have the last 7 daily backups of the week, the last 4 weekly backups of the month, the last 12 monthly backups of the year for the last years.


First install and configure raspiBackup. See this page for details. When you managed to create a dd backup download from github


sudo mv ./ /usr/local/bin

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/

Now test


Finally change /etc/cron.d/raspiBackup

00 05 * * 0 root /usr/local/bin/

to create a backup every day

00 05 * * * root /usr/local/bin/

That's it :-)
