Subject: [gentoo-user] Backing up my box
Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2007 10:10:49
1 I've got an 8Gb Gentoo virtual machine that I'm working out a backup
2 plan for. Since the disk space is pretty small, I'm thinking about just
3 taking a full image of the disk for backups, rather than cherry-picking
4 DBs, mail, etc.
6 I'd like to take a full image every day (but only transfer the
7 differences), which I'll store for a week. Does this sound like a
8 reasonable enough approach?
10 My initial thoughts were just to use rsync to grab everything. Would
11 this be appropriate for this kind of backup? Is there a better tool to
12 get the job done?
14 Any suggestions appreciated,
16 Mark
