I wonder if anyone have built or know of a readily available automatic backup solutions for bitbucket? As I understand it bitbucket current backups are only for disaster recovery?

Hi Pierre,

As mentioned by the document you linked, Bitbucket itself doesn't offer a way to restore a repository deleted by a user. I did however some research and found some links that may be useful. As pointed by Seth, every clone of the repo is indeed a backup (maybe not always up to date), so you should be able to restore a repository by having your own backup of it.

In the following links there is some discussion on this, as well as some scripts presented to have this done, in case you want to automatize the process:

What kind of situation are you wanting the backups to protect you from?

For example: if you accidently deleted your repository.

Technically, every clone of the repository is a backup (Git and Hg), though the owner of the clone is responsible for running Fetches to keep it up-to-date. Maybe someone else knows of something more automatic, though.

So I have 3 users and one master file also a download site/upload I have cloned and since fetched from source tree daily. How to verify I am getting all my files? I am not a developer I am an owner. total newbie. I need a piece of mind my source code is complete and out of harm's way, Please advise?

 

Peter!!
