BACKUP snereo

Postby scorpion » Thu Apr 28, 2011 8:50 am

I have taken backup of my machine on an external hard drive,
I created a tarball and than used gunzip to make a tar.gz
Now the backup is done in form of backup.tar.gz

Now the snereo is after a few days I need to take backup again
i.e incremental backup and I need that the already made archeive
backup.tar.gz is updated (incremented with the updated data), I am not sure howto do this.

1. stop using tar for this task
2. install rsync and rsnapshot
3. use rsnapshot.

Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?
