Rsync for incremental backups
 
In the Rsync man page it says the --backup option is useful for incremental backups. Is this possible given a single command or do I need to create one for each day of the week/month/whatever my increment is and use a separate folder/suffix for each increment.

A quick google search brought up this tutorial which looks promising:

rsync is very powerful, there are many options you can do with it to do backups, well for the simple backup without involving any other 3rd party tools since rsync literally comes with every distribution that I know of. You can probably dig up more by doing searches on google.com/linux ;)
