one to many?

one to many?

We know more or less how borg behaves in the "many to one" scenario,
that is when we try to backup multiple servers to a single backup
repository.

What about "one to many"? Can a single server be backed up to multiple
independent borg repositories?

I don't see any problem with that. Make as many backups as you like. :)

See output of this:

ls -l ~/.cache/borg

What you see are the (unique) repoids used for directories to keep the
stuff separate, so there are no issues with that.

As a side note: space usage for the cache will increase if you backup to
multiple repositories, so be careful with free disk space.
