Do you need an option allowing to save backups in multiple files (one file per qube)? I think it would be helpful for everyone, because one would be able to manage old backups more easily:
- One could see which qubes are backed up without starting Qubes Backup (or even Qubes at all if necessary);
- One could easily manage the old backups: delete qubes one not longer considers valuable (e.g. Debian-8, Fedora 28 templates) to save space, make additional copies of valuable qubes with simple copy-paste;
- Potentially faster access to the data by only decrypting the needed qubes.
@adw thinks it is confusing for regular users and is only useful for power users, but I do not consider myself the latter. For this reason he closed the Github issue:
My sense is this is not a mainstream use case.
Do you agree with him?
P.S. Sorry for not commenting in the Github issue. I do not have a Github account and do not want to agree to Microsoft ToS (including possible more crappy versions of it in the future).
