Well actually I do not depend upon one tool alone. I use different tools for different generation and types of backup. BURP is my goto network backup tool. I like to get quarterly whole-server or whole disk images for DR recovery, and what tool I use depends upon other factors. (Virtual server lend themselves to different solutions than native iron servers, for example.)

I find it very odd that tar and rsync are in THIS list. Tar is an archive tool rather than a backup tool, and rsync is a file/folder sync tool rather than a backup tool.

I use rsync with tar, but the more important of those is probably rsync.

Rsnapshot for my daily backups. Clonezilla for special image backups. FSArchiver for special partition backups. Rsync for mirroring task.

It was a close one between luckyBackup and rsync but I chose the latter.

I voted for Back In Time, but I also use Clonezilla and DD to make clones of partitions.
