Backup program?

Hi all,

i have Samba running on RedHat 9 and need to regularly backup all shared data to an another computer on the network (Linux machine preferably).

Can anyone recommend me a good (and free backup program? It should probably support an incremental backup bc there are about 20 GBs of the shared data and i d like to backup changed files every hour without increasing network traffic too much.

Thx in advance

Why not right a shell script and run it as a cron job?

If you know the commands to do it manually, it should just be a matter of sticking it in a script.

I found this link for a backup shellscript which works very well for my needs. It supports full as well as incremental backups.
