Theses are the list of backup tools I have tried out or interested in:
It is a client backup tool. It is good to install on mac or windows to backup personal files with AWS S3 or your server.
Server backup tool. It is very easy to use and set up. Wet it once and then forgot about it.
$ sudo aptitude install rsnapshot
$ sudo vi /etc/cron.d/rsnapshot
Uncomment the last 4 lines
$ sudo vi /etc/rsnapshot.conf
- “BACKUP INTERVALS”: uncomment hourly, daily, weekly, etc. as you want.
- “BACKUP POINTS / SCRIPTS”: uncomment or add path of folders you want to backup.
Checkout “/var/cache/rsnapshot/” to find your backed up data.
