I have a remote Linux server machine that I wanted to mirror backup now and then. Since I am a Windows user, I installed Linux virtual machine on my Windows and I am now using rsnapshot to do the backup. So, rsnapshot takes data from remote linux server and backs them up into local linux virtual machine.
Is this backup inside a virtual machine safe and good thing to do?
Should I maybe install Linux normaly on a different drive and use dual boot and backup there instead?
