rsnapshot has been added (don't know how I missed it in the first place - http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...with_rsnapshot).

I think the choices are apples and oranges here. We use Amanda as well as tar. Actually mostly tar within context of Amanda. Anyway, Amanda has been rock solid for us for many years - so gets my vote.

I've used simplebackup and currently kbackup, but rsync is very useful for all my needs (winxp and gnu/Linux.

SBackup

Quite simply program but for me it's fine. It has all useful features to me

rdiff-backup is an unreplacable linux backup utility for me. It's based on librsync, but keeps incremental snapshots so I think it deserves to be on the list.

And none of those are typical backup programs but tools/utilities to archive files, not backup program managers, etc.

I always backup in stone, or at least tar.
