    Backup solutions.

    Im using 12.04 ubuntu.

    I want a simple backup for my server.

    I want a differential backup of my disk to an external hdd.

    Anyone got any tip?

    Regards!

    Re: Backup sulotions.

    You could make a simple cron job with rsync to take a backup of specific file paths. And place them in a folder you create on the hdd example Okt -> 02Okt2012

    That is probably how i would do it for a fast and efficient solution.

    Thank you.

    I use Clonezilla. Clonezilla require that you boot from CD and you need to do it manually.)
    Any way i can get this to work automatically?

    Does Rsync work differential?
    the backup is is at about 1TB, if i take a new copy every time. You get the idea hehe

    You can custom the rsync command to only take the changes.

    There are many ways to backup stuff on your linux box So many that there is even a book about it (768 pages worth)
    http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596102463.do It's a pretty in depth book, but it covers almost all the methods. Personally, I too like rsync the best for what I do.

    Take a look at rsnapshot is the repos. It uses rsync and implements most of the "dirty rsync tricks" the books will tell you to use
