    Backup solution (hourly, daily, nightly)

    At work on our Redhat based systems out IT department has setup a backup system that I was to emulate at home.

    In each directory (or specified directories) in the file system there is a .snapshot (notice the .) directory that stores snapshots of the items in that directory taken a specified intervals (hourly.0,2,3, etc) an ls -al or the .snapshot looks like.

    Code:
    % ls -al .snapshot/
    total 148
    drwxrwxrwx  10 root    wheel     4096 2010-04-30 08:00 .
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 ..
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 dfm_sv_backup(users-snap09)SV0.0
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 hourly.0
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 hourly.1
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 hourly.2
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 hourly.3
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 nightly.0
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 nightly.1
    drwxrwxrwx  22 jillr users 16384 2010-04-22 15:22 weekly.0
    How are they doing this and can it be done on Ubuntu.

    I have used rsnapshot in the past, but that puts these snapshots (hourly, daily, weekly, etc) in a specified location.

    I want to put it in the same directory under a dot snapshot (.snapshot) directory.

    Thanks
