|Re: [PLUG] Incremental backup via cron|
I use a simple rsync script that dumps to a USB disk.
rsync can be set to only backup changed files. I also set it for renaming existing (older) files so I can go back in time if necessary).
Every month or so, I rotate the USB disk and store the USB disk in a safe(r) place.
If you are interested, Paul, I'll send you the script I use.
