3 Erm, "Me too..."
5 My first attempt centred on Duplicity - which, on the surface, seemed to
6 be exactly what I wanted... but, unfortunately, it is unusably buggy...
7 and is no longer in avtive development.
9 My second (in-progress) attempt is with BoxBackup - which seems far more
10 robust... and promises the benefits of a 'continuous' backup - which I
11 now consider significant. The BoxBackup distribution instills a greater
12 sense of confidence - but documentation remains thin... and I'm
13 wrestling with configuring the backup daemon on a remote server (for
14 which I do not have root access...)
16 I'd be interested to hear other annecdotes about BoxBackup - is anyone
17 here using it and happy with their setup? Is there a good HowTo anywhere?
