    Help Choosing a Backup utility

    I have a computer running Ubuntu 9.10 as a server (it is in standard Ubuntu not Ubuntu server edition). I have 4 1TB hard drives, three of which I want to back up to on certain days of the week. I have tried using Lucky-Backup and Rsync but neither seem to be able to handle the amount of data (there is currently about 400GB). Does anyone know of a program that can run scheduled backups of this size?

    I have found Sbackup, and deja dup to work beautifully!
    easy to use to!

    edit: oops, sorry, not sure about the "size"..
    but I did put deja dup on a friends 9.10 and backed up his 1TB external fine.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but what I am actually looking for I guess would be more accurately described as a utility to recursively copy the files from one drive to the other drives on different days of the week.

    The application you are looking for is called rsnapshot
