If btrfsctl were on that poll I would almost certainly vote for it. But no, it isn't.

its hard to rate server and home backup products in one thread, but im really suprised with dropbox as a backup for files at home and some at work... its unbelievably easy to use, you dont have to do anything, just install and setup youre account and its working, i love that it backs up a new version of the file every time you save a file in the "box"

Hey,

I know this is late, but I just registered on this site

I see people have voted clonezilla highly, but I am surprised. Although I agree clonezilla is a terrific tool for imaging the drives or partitions on the same machine or on a remote machine, you need to shutdown your system always and to me I don't think you can afford taking your servers down to do full disk or partition image.

I would have voted for Amanda. It works quite nicely with virtual tapes as well on multiple platforms such as linux/solaris..etc.

If I was allowed to vote 2 times, then BackupPC would have been other choice, it has a user friendly web interface..
