Hi there trying to back up my filesystem to an external hard drive saved as a zip. Most of the help on the net so far shows how to backup certain directories but I didn't see anywhere showing when someone wants to back up / everything. Less /proc with the -x switch.
I am trying to follow this example from https://www.howtogeek.com/135533/how-to-use-rsync-to-backup-your-data-on-linux/
zip /ZippedFiles/archive.zip /Directory1/ && rsync -av --delete /ZippedFiles/ /Directory2/
Here is what I got so far:
zip //OrcaComputers.zip / && rsync -avx --delete // /run/media/orca/DataCabinet
What I am telling the machine is to zip the filesystem, call it
OrcaComputers.zip and transfer it to the Data Cabinet.
I keep getting:
zip error: Internal logic error (empty name without -j or -r)
What am I missing here? I feel like it's something related to be using the
zipis highly dangerous, since it carries a central reference at the end of the archive and completely fails to extract anything if that is missing or damaged.
