I wrote a nice backup script.
So I thought somebody else could use the script, or modify it to their own needs.
I use the script to backup my home PC to local and remote storages, and it really works well.
Find more information here: https://github.com/wolfv6/rclone_jobber
A few rclone_jobber features:
  • Options to archive old backup files in their original hierarchy
  • Abort if job is already running (maybe previous run didn't finish)
  • Pop-up for error conditions
  • Option for a cron-monitoring service Logging
  • Free (open source Creative Commons Zero license)
  • Uses rclone
Rclone features:
  • Back up to remote cloud storage (safe from local disaster)
  • Over 30 cloud-storage providers to choose from (so you're never locked into a provider)
  • Back up to local storage
  • MD5/SHA1 hashes checked at all times for file integrity
  • rsync-like algorithm and command-line interface
  • Optional encryption (Crypt)
  • Free (open source MIT license)
