Hi All. I think it is time for me to setup a backup system for my files. I have lost my files once, and I don't want it to happen again.
My main HD is a 320gb seagate. I installed a backup HD with 120gb, which should be sufficient to simply hold my personal files.
The HD is currently formatted as fat3d, and does not mount upon login. I really don't like how it always appears on my desktop when I do mount it. I think there should be a way to disable that popup.
I've been looking at backup solutions, and I think that the best program would be Grsync. Other programs, like Back in Time, Flyback, etc seem poorly maintained and may not hold up. Since I only need to backup /home, I don't think it should be that much of a problem.
I wanted something that uses symlinks, as to reduce the amount of copying needed.
Is there a solution similar to "time machine" for Mac-OS? I think that the Ubuntu Foundation should consider including a backup utility in the fresh install, as to emphasize the importance of backing up.
