I already voted for rsync since I assumed these have to be open source, but then I noticed Skype and Viber in messaging category so I think Crash Plan would be appropriate here. It's free for backing up to your own server, easy to setup and I've been running it on all my computers for several years now with zero issues.

I may have stumbled there... Linux, sure - but perhaps not Open Source. Sorry, but still - very good :-)

Ive been meaning to check it out as well. What sort of backups do you use it for? VMS? Filesystems? Databases? Domain Controllers? Exchange?

Definitely rsync. I think the only other one I've tried on the list is Back In Time, and I wasn't impressed. I'll stick with the old staple.

BorgBackup has been added (this will ensure it's included from the beginning next year).

Thanks, obviously it won't get many votes this year, but there's an interesting post here from the rsync.net guys that outlines what its about (vs rsync, rsnapshot, duplicity). Obviously there are others, but borg is a definitely up there with the best (as far as nice, scriptable stuff goes).

I'm running borg with a wrapper called borgmatic via croon.
Very nice!

Convenient, simple, yet configurable.
