B2 Backup from Router

    I’ve just received my 86U and have connected a hard drive to it, which is primarily going to be my on-site backup drive accessed via SMB.

    I would like the safety net of an off site backup and plan to back up the hard drive using a client on my hard drive. Clearly this isn’t ideal as it requires the laptop to be up and running.

    Does anybody know of a way to run any programme on the router itself which can encrypt and backup the data to the BackBlaze B2 Service? I appreciate it’ll be slow but the rate of change is quite small so it should be too onerous once the initial backup is done.
