I was looking at the howto found here:
If anyone knows anything about using rdiff, I'd like your input because I'm curious about how this works, exactly. I'm currently using rsync for my backups and I'm wondering how the 2 compare.
Since rdiff does backups that include version history, does that mean if I were to ls -l into the backup directory, I would see additional folders that contain the version history? Can somebody show me what this might look like?
My deal is... I don't think I want to use the restore commands provided in rdiff to do my file restorations. I want the ability to just mv a large block of data to another spot. Can I do that if my backups are made with rdiff? Or will I be copying a bunch of old revisions too?
Thanks in advance.
