    I do not know if that will meet your need, but I would also propose "meld" (it is in the repos).

    Meld is a tool which allows the user to see the changes in, and merge between, either two files, two directories, or two files with a common ancestor.

    It is a classic two panel tool and allows you to exclude, include or ignore files to be transfered (maybe wrong but I am not sure that unison does), before it all starts.

    Run as a cron job on a server, pulling the backup data from my client laptop 4 times a day.

    I've been doing this for 3 years, simple, automated, reliable and stress free!!

    Thanks for the link, sounds like a useful program.

    I stick with rsync, since I just backup my data to an external drive. I don't exactly have multiple backups tho (Mon-Fri).

    rsync is my favorite, never had problems with it and in verbose mode I can easily see if there were any problems copying any files or folders.
