Can anyone please suggest a decent backup program to use? I need to take the following into account:
1. I have a NAS which hosts some files. I want to back these files up to a folder on my local drive.
2. I can connect (through Nautilus) to the SMB share where these files are located, but all of the backup programs I have tried seem to have problems with accessing a SMB share.
3. I want the program to be able to copy just the changed files (i.e. incremental)
4. I don't want the backup to be tarred, zipped, etc - I just want a copy of the file on the NAS in a folder on my PC.
5. As I will run the backup manually, I will mount the share manually before backing up - therefore the program doesn't have to.
I have tried quite a few programs now and all of them have failed (as I can't seem to put the SMB path in as the source - I have to point to the mount point, which is where the problems start) the programs include:
even good old cp command (which used to work fine in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but don't want to work in this version 12.10)
Either I'm missing something really basic, or there is a gap in the market for a good backup program.
Any assistance would be gratefully received, as this is driving me mad
