I just recently started using a neat program called timevault (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TimeVault). It's a backup program for ubuntu that uses snapshots, like time machine for Mac OS X.

My question is, how do I configure it to save all backups to a DVD?
Has anyone had any success with this? I was thinking I could just throw a R/W DVD into my computer and have it write and overwrite the same disc ;)

Anyone else tried this program? Works pretty well, I might add.

Any suggestions would be appreciated greatly. Thanks! :popcorn:

timevault sounds pretty nice. i'll have to try it out. I've been using sbackup (http://sbackup.wiki.sourceforge.net/)
