    You need to ask much more specific.

    OracleŽ Database Backup and Recovery Basics
    RMAN> BACKUP INCREMENTAL LEVEL 1 DATABASE;

    incremental backup using rsync:
    rsync -vazi --rsh="sshpass -p password ssh -l root" 10.200.2.36:/backup /backup

    `--listed-incremental=FILE'
    `-g FILE'
    Handle incremental backups with snapshot data in FILE.

    To create an incremental backup, you would use
    `--listed-incremental' together with `--create' (*note create:. For
    example:

    $ tar --create \
    --file=archive.1.tar \
    --listed-incremental=/var/log/usr.snar \
    /usr

    -g, --listed-incremental=FILE
    handle new GNU-format incremental backup

    Is there any more that you need.

    Kudos for going the extra mile.
    But then again, guessing what praveenvikram24r meant and presenting solutions that might apply to his usecase is a bit inefficient.
    It would make answering a lot easier, if the scenario would be clear.

    Thanks Irithori.
    I just put it in place to see if any of it makes sense to him/her.

    if you truly care about back-ups, and are trying to support many users, or are quite finicky about customizing backups, then consider a robust backup application like Bacula, a free, open source backup solution with plenty of variety in OS support. You should also be thinking about redundancy and off-line storage.

    If you are checking in/out code, etc., think about using something like Git, CVS, SVN, etc.

    If you are just backing up your own files and aren't too worried...rsync.
