LXer: Easy system backups with Mandriva's DrakBackup
Published at LXer:

Drakbackup follows along the same lines as the rest of Mandriva's easy to use wizard toolset. It takes away a lot of the confusing "system administrator speak" that sometimes goes along with utilities such as this, and replaces it with simple sentences that even the novice PC user can understand.

drakbackup reports backup incorrectly
O.K. I set my DrakBackup to automatically backup (after an initial backup) weekly. This morning was the first time this happened. The computer became unstable and would not reboot as user.

Logon as root allowed access to the gui tools. Examination of the system logs showed that a backup was performed and an email was sent confirming the operation. However, I cannot find the backup files in the place that the script defines. I can see the backups that I did a few days ago manually, but not the new files.

Any help in getting my computer up and running again will be appreciated.
