    Backup Program


    Does anyone have a suggestion for a free and easy way to setup/use a
    backup program.

    I'm a linux beginner so most of the programs I've run across are over my head.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    tar, dump may be useful to you.. Depends on how much you want to backup and what device you wish to use to backup the stuff to

    There's an cheap but good solution by using tar. I've written a backup script, which completly back-up my whole system, and make it a .tar.gz file. But, you do have to know that some directory's must be skipped at backup time. Here's an article how to tar your whole system. An article of how to restore, will be added this week.

    Here's the article: http://linuxnewbie.dyndns.org/index....tarticle&id=20
