I think I have this right - it seems to be working.
Followed this up to encrypting the drive. Backups are already encrypted so no need to double encrypt.
I cloned the debian-10 template to debian-10-backup
adjusted the storage size to reflect the size of the SSD - 456G
created a new appvm called backup with
no network and
only files and terminal for apps
adjusted the storage size for max
I then backed up all my qubes except for the backup qube. it finished!
should i backup my backup qube? I dont think a recursive loop would start would it?
Anyways I think Im getting the hang of QubeOS. For a while there i just wanted to add a SSD to use as storage - cant do that as everything has to be in a Qube. At least that’s my understanding
