Rclone and Hubic

A few weeks ago, I run out of backup space on Dropbox for my VMs. It has been bothering me for a while that I have no remote backup of my VMs and I've finally got round to sorting it out. I signed up to Hubic as it is cheap as hell - 10TB for €5 a month. Can't go wrong (just don't expect much - if any - support).

When setting up rclone, I had a 500 server error

2017/06/19 20:00:02 Attempt 1/3 failed with 1 errors and: HTTP Error: 500: 500 Internal Error

The fix for this is here

Basically, when choosing a remote directory to backup, add "default" to your path. So this command

rclone --config /home/user/.rclone.conf sync /media/storage hubic:/vms/storage

becomes this

rclone --config /home/user/.rclone.conf sync /media/storage hubic:default/vms/storage
