Automated Backup for Oracle VirtualBox on Windows

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7393ddce18>

Hi All,

I just wanted to share with all of you - especially those of you who are running Home Assistant as a Virtual Machine on Windows - my take on Automated Backups for your VirtualBox VMs.

Please have a look at the GitHub page: VirtualBox-Backup

Features include:

  • Live Snapshot (no downtime)
  • File compression
  • Auto delete old backups
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Rotation
  • Backup to NAS

Feel free to make suggestions, comments, critique.

Cheers Niels


I’ve published an update with support for backup without downtime.

Very nice. I can not figure out how to get a UPS to do a complete shutdown, rather than ‘saved’ of VB VMs? Have you run into that?

Can’t say that I do. I’ve send you a PM to continue this conversation as it is slightly off-topic.
