More backup suggestions

Recently I've read a nice article over at Jon Dowland's blog regarding backup tools on POSIX machines. There he recommends obnam, another backup tool which sounds pretty interesting to me.

As I was a pretty satisfied user of Torsten Rupp's BAR (e.g. see here and here) I've switched over to rdiff-backup for the sake of easier restoring and accessing my backed up files.

rdiff-backup works pretty well for me, but I'll definitively give obnam a try soon ...especially de-duplication sounds awesome for non-ZFS users. Stay tuned.

Oh, and if you're interested in what's going on in your /etc (and also want a backup of it): Use etckeeper
