  • rsnapshot creates hard links to file that haven't changed. So, it uses a lot less space than multiple rsync jobs. I have used it for a long time. Works great.


    If you share the shared folder via samba, nfs, or whatever, you could see the directory structure of copy whatever you need. So, no cli needed.

    As you write " I have used it for a long time. Works great." - what are you using now?

  • You both must interpret that as I stopped using it. That is not what that means. It means I have been using it for years and still use it. I highly recommend it.

  • I wouldn't share the backup-folder via samba to secure it from direct access.
    If needed only as read-only. Too much ransom-trojans actually.


    That is actually what I recommended in another post. Myself, I have a backup server and backups on tape. Plus, my systems are running linux so I am not too worried about crypto viruses.
