anyone know a good, simple one?

all i wanna do is make a tarball of each user's /home/user directory and write it to my slave drive. if it could do that say, once a week, automatically, that would be cool, and if it could do it incrementally then that would be perfect.

i used kdar with kde, and that was pretty good. but i can't find a nice simple gnome equivalent...


cheers

bob

It is easy to use a cron job to do it.

Scroll down in that article to the section 'Creating the job to be run by cron'.

thanks for the suggestion. i have tried the cron job at home and it looks to be ok, but i won't know until it runs its weekly backup tonight.

i did find a gnome backup utility which looks nice n simple. it uses cron to schedule backups - http://www.icewalkers.com/Linux/Softwar ... ackup.html

just playing with the setup, so i dunno how good it is yet.

rsync

(oh, that's not gnome, but it works well. It's command line)
