3 Tools to Backup Your Obsidian Vaults

3 Tools to Backup Your Obsidian Vaults

Windows Backup/Apple Time Machine

The first type of backup is to use what’s built into your computer. This will mainly be either Windows or MacOS so you should use Windows Backup and File History and Time Machine respectively.

Ideally you should set these up to use an external drive to provide further protection in case anything happens to your computer. This can be done easily in their settings. If you set them to do their default backup settings they should cover anywhere you put your Obsidian vaults.



One example is Dropbox with its file history won’t sync some types of filenames (ones with emojis that Obsidian sync has no problem with) so you want something more robust and will just copy everything as is.

My current choice if online backup tool is Backblaze. This just works in the background to upload all your files by default. You can check and set exclusions to make sure that it doesn’t exclude your Obsidian vaults.
