Re: backuppc questions.

|OK, I've downloaded backupninja and... can't find
the docs. Apropos-ing on backupninja, ninja or backup gets me
nothing. What am I missing?
I don't know that backuppc is what your looking for. Unless your backing up a
bunch of computers, I doubt that its going to be worth setting this
program up. If you are only backing up one(maybe at most 5) computers I
would suggest backupninja and a usb hard drive.
Well, I picked backuppc under the mistaken impression that having the
"Ubuntu Supported" icon next to it meant it was ... supported.
;-) I'm open to using anything that simplifies my task for
now. Backuppc doesn't sound like the program to use in this case,
so I'll take your kind suggestion instead.
I would further
suggest using the rdiff-backup backend for everyday use and cd-r backend
for weekly or monthly use. If your really paranoid you can use
duplicity(instead of rdiff-backup), to encrypt your backups.
I have no luck at all with CD-R backups. I find them highly
unreliable and they tend to fail without any kind of warning that there
was a problem. So I think I'm covered only to find out that I've
lost years (literally, in one case!) of work with no chance to recover.
I'll be using a USB disk for backing up. Thanks for the pointer to backupninja.
