Backup


I'm looking for a user friendly backup software. I've looked at a couple of packages Amanda, Sitback, and Mondo. They all work well but what I'm looking for is something to leave at a customers site and let them check it everyday. Something from a menu system word work perfect.

Anyway, I'm wondering what backup software Linux people use?

Definetely a cool program with great uses, but what I'm looking for is something I can backup to tape, do a full restore if necessary or only restore one file or one directory from tape. Basically something like Arcserv, only free.

I know Arcserv has a Linux version but the Windows version doesn't always work as advertised so why would any other version. The thing I like about it is that it is easy for an End User to check on the backup status. It is also easy to restore only certain files as needed when the backup works.

Have you heard of anything like that?
