  • Initialize a (local) repository:
    borg init path/to/repo_directory
  • Backup a directory into the repository, creating an archive called "Monday":
    borg create --progress path/to/repo_directory::Monday path/to/source_directory
  • List all archives in a repository:
    borg list path/to/repo_directory
  • Extract a specific directory from the "Monday" archive in a remote repository, excluding all `*.ext` files:
    borg extract [email protected]:path/to/repo_directory::Monday path/to/target_directory --exclude '*.ext'
  • Prune a repository by deleting all archives older than 7 days, listing changes:
    borg prune --keep-within 7d --list path/to/repo_directory
  • Mount a repository as a FUSE filesystem:
    borg mount path/to/repo_directory::Monday path/to/mountpoint
  • Display help on creating archives:
    borg create --help
