    Regular data backups what can I use?


    So basically I have 6x 1TB drives in a Linux raid 5, and I have 2x 1.5TB drives running standalone and 1x 2TB drive.

    I want to backup weekly, data from the Raid 5 array to these independent disks. I configured 3 directories, one for each disk.

    data1 => 2TB drive with 1.1TB of valuable data
    data2 => First 1.5TB drive 430GB of tech tools and Linux ISO
    data3 => Second 1.5TB 46GB of Misc items.

    Everything will be local, no network backups or anything like that.

    What can I setup with a script or cron job or something that will allow not only a full backup but incremental backups too.

    Is rsync good for this job?

    Any help is appreciated.

    rsnapshot is old, but I liked it back then.

    Searching the web, I found this nice looking thing Synbak Features | InitZero S.r.l. - IT Solutions.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    May have a look at AMANDA (Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver):
