    Backup software


    I have 2 Fedora 9 machine, I'm looking for a backup software have these functions: copy files to remote machine with no compression (I want to keep the same folder structure with the sources), incremental backup, preserves permissions, uid/gid ownership, and schedule.

    Anyone can help me? Thanks!

    You could use rsync which will help you keep a remote copy of your local
    data syncronized, i.e. up to date.
    It's a command line tool, and it has a bunch of switches that allow you to
    specify exactly the things you mentions (preserving rwx bits, ownership,
    incremental backup, etc.)

    The is not scheduling, but you could set it up as a cron job.

    Personally, I use grsync which is a GUI that stores a list of rsync calls for me.

    cheers, kai

    For incremental backups, check rsnapshot.
