I have all my data on external supports such as my own cloud, and mail provider,
with the exception of locally created photos.
So I only have to secure the account data and the locally created content.
Preferably with adb [sync | pull | push] source dest and a cron shell script running inside my PC.
How do I identify the directories containing the five account data and is it possible to copy these data back and forth?

All the files in the internal storage will not be saved, and you have to do it manually if you want to. This guide works a…

I did TWRP backup once. It produced a 1.3 Gigabyte file. Takes time.
Opposed to a backup of 6 https://* addresses with username and password !
5 are for dav5x/ 3 x caldav, 2 x carddav
1 is for the nextcloud app /data
Probably this amounts to less than 1 kByte
and all other settings some more kBytes.
and a small shell script installing all the apps which do not come with the OS .
in case of a fresh install another kByte.
I will test more with shell scripts and adb
