Great that you've got a working Bacula system now

Now you've got plenty of work studying the Bacula documentation to learn how to customise the .conf files.

The bacula-users mailing list can be useful; you can Google it via Advanced search and using "Search within a site or domain: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=bacula-users"; if you like it you can join here or use the HTML mirror at Backup Central.

I use rsync and Amazon s3 depending on what I'm packing up to where.

Skullsoldier, I've been using rsync with Windows for a long time. Works the same there as on any Unix flavor you might have.

My bad i just checked wikipedia fast and saw that it was only unix platformd, and i didn't check and see on the rsync home page to see that there is a package named cwRsync of rsync for MS Windows. my bad X-nc.

Jeah have a long way to go before i will get this system working :P thanks for the tip about the Advanced search known that function has been there but never use it.

Already have joined the Bacula user's email list for support and discussions.

I use Time Machine on my primary box, nothing really on my Linux box (which is a simple test bed web server).

I should really use something--just to practice. Really, everything that goes to the Linux box is already on my primary machine.

Almost two years ago, I wrote this post on my website: Researching rdiff-backup Remote Backup. It's rather dated, but still gets viewed by many people, and I will definitely write a follow-up when I have time...

For years, I have used rdiff-backup to backup my Internet-Hosting server on which I have numerous clients. I have also used it to backup the Windows servers & workstations of clients.

I have considered using Bacula, but rdiff-backup has served me well, and does incremental backups (i.e. efficiently backing up only the changes to files, and allowing me to restore data to its state at any previous backup session) like Apple's Time Machine (only free and without the many restrictions and wallet-gouging).

Regards,
Daniel Shakhmundes
