Image and Incremental backups with rsync


Hi there --

I want to have image and incremental backups via rsync, and I wanted to know what options would I use for the incremental and image backups respectively? Thanks.

You can us a combination of the commands find and rsync in your bash scripts to do incremental backups.

If your server doesn't support `rsync' -- as does my Internet Service Provider -- you can still use ssh & tar:
