I have built a software written in go to create 𝐟𝐚𝐬𝐭, 𝐫𝐨𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐭, and 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐥 backups of your WSL instances.
Open Source - 7 Febbraio 2024

Those who know me are well aware that my preferred operating system is Linux, but ever since we fully switched to Microsoft in the company, I found myself (once again) having to use WSL (which I have discussed on several occasions and in various talks).

Regarding WSL, after months of intensive use both as a Developer and DevOps, I can only reaffirm my initial impressions: Microsoft has done a great job.

The sore point remains the backup issue, which is currently only possible through CLI and in a synchronous manner.

From this consideration was born the need to develop WSLSnappy, that is, a tool capable of safely and quickly backing up one or more WSL instances!

I used Go and the power of goroutines, it was really fun.

I’m beginning to implement the logic to encrypt these backups and send them to our preferred cloud.

For now, I recommend reading the documentation on my repository to understand how to use it 🙂

I’ll keep you updated!
