backups


Good day,
Does anybody have a slick backup script I can use to insure that I have a full backup of my Mandrake 9.1 system.
Here is my filesystem setup.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 3.9G 2.5G 1.3G 67% /
/dev/hda1 46M 8.7M 35M 20% /boot
/dev/hda6 9.7G 41M 9.7G 1% /home
/dev/hda7 3.8G 465M 3.2G 13% /var
/dev/hdb1 19G 1.5G 16G 9% /var/www

I wish I could find a way where I could mirror my data to another partition.. Do you see how this can be done?
I have thought about tar.. Where can I create a sh script so it can run nightly?

Does this sort of filesystem make sense to anybody?

Thank you very much...

To run script or any command really at a regular interval
check out
man cron

Here are a few programs that might help you

http://freshmeat.net is a wonderful resource for software of all types.

If you want to mirror your drive you might want to check out
software raid 1

This will provide an instantaneous and complete backup of the
entire system in case of catastrophic failure. Although it does
require a lot of space. And should be done on a completely
different physical harddrive instead of just a different partition.
