    Question How do you do your rsync backups?

    I ran across a very interesting link that provided some interesting tips on rsync backups:

    http://www.halfgaar.net/backing-up-unix

    Among the more interesting switches are:

    --archive --sparse --numeric-ids --hard-links --delete --delete-excluded --delete-after

    I run rsnaphot from a cron job on my server daily to back up my laptop. Uses rsync over ssh (with keys).

    Been doing this for ages now - runs beautifully - never lets me down.

    +1.

    I rsnapshot daily (hourly is overkill for me) to another partition on the same hard drive (laptop), then occasionally (every week or two), I rsync the entire rsnapshot backups to an external hard drive.

    I use rsync to back up files from my laptop to my server with Grsync.
