  • rdiff-backup

  • rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a network. The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special subdirectory of that target directory, so you can still recover files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also preserves subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid ownership, modification times, extended attributes, acls, and resource forks. Also, rdiff-backup can operate in a bandwidth efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive up to a remote location, and only the differences will be transmitted. Finally, rdiff-backup is easy to use and settings have sensical defaults. »

  • Snebu

  • Snebu -- Simple Network Backup UtilityAn easy to set up and use snapshot-style backup system for Linux. Each backup is a full snapshot of your system, classified with a retention schedule (such as daily, weekly, monthly, etc). Individual backups can be manually expired, or expired based on age / retention schedule. Backups are collected using `find` and `tar` commands, the meta data is extracted into a data catalog (using SQLite), and the file contents are stored deduplicated and compressed in a `lzop` compatible file format. »
