As am I. Riley and I chatted a bit about backup solutions last night
also. I'd never heard of TimeVault so thanks for adding it to the long
list of options. I'd love to hear from more people about the
solution(s) they use.
I've used rsnapshot for the past couple of years and have been satisfied
with its backup/restore capabilities. But without an intuitive GUI, I'm
hesitant to recommend it to desktop users. Looks like TimeVault(GNOME
front-end) may not be worth experimenting with on my KDE desktop though?
A word to those of us less experienced in administering a machine --
once you've chosen your backup tool, you still have the other half of
the work: picking the correct scheme. Lots of advice out there, within
our own mailing list archives and of course in the informative web
archives of linuxmafia.org
