    Good backup application...

    Anybody have any good suggestion on a simple to use backup application?

    I used mondo before that could do isos, distributed directorys and that kind of stuff.

    Anybody using something else?

    If you want simple to use, partimage is pretty good.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    personally (on my server) i use the tar command on a crontab to backup stuff to a directory named by the directory.

    But i guess u could just save the shell script, and run as and when you wanted to.

    Personally I backup using Bacula. It is a little hard to set up (well, not really hard as it has excellent documentation, it just requires a little bit more time and work than most systems) but once it runs, the rest is all automatic. (The latest development version even backs up to DVD)
