The system has worked ok (you should see the massive bash script I've made to handle it all!).
I've since found out there's such a thing as Bacula and others, where you can make backups and it only stores the new/different data (saving space) and you can easily pick a backup time and restore a file from that point in time.
So I'm looking into what sort of options are out there and which if any is more the 'standard' or 'best'.
The ones I've come across so far:
- Back In Time
- Simple Backup
Being an intermediate linux user I still prefer a GUI for these things. But I'm not averse to CLI only if it's the better overall solution.
Most backups occur over network share and SSH with some FTP connections thrown in there.
If a solution stores the data in a compressed format too that would be nice as well but not deal breaking.
Also if there's a solution with a user client side program that helped with client side backups that'd be great too. Maybe I'm asking too much.
BackupPC seems the best looking & fitting of the lot so far (project hasn't been updated for 11 months, but in the open source world that might be normal), though I haven't dug too much into them all yet.
Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations?
