Regular Backups Even on Virtual Machines

I spent a big chunk of the morning writing some C to produce a rather specialized shape.  (It was of course done.)  Along the way, I created all the emacs bindings and additions to .bashrc that I prefer and somehow VMWare Workstations 16.2 lost all of that.  Weirdly, installing linuxCNC no longer asks to me create a user.


  1. I run everything on VMs, and have cron jobs that copy the VHDs to removable HDs every night.

    1. I was wondering how to do a backup from virtual Linux!

  2. I use GitHub for backup for a lot of projects. It's fast, it's free (depending on usage) and it runs on any platform.
