Re: does Fedora have a backup utility
i'm a backup freak, i've had too many hard disks die on me to be bitten by lack of backups.
at the moment i use a combination of the following which i backup to my fileserver and an external sata drive:
backintime - for backing up my $home directory non-sensitive files, its handy for a quick restore;
gnupg2 - i tar up and encrypt my sensitive files (ssh keys, banking, email, work etc.) for achiving;
rsync - for backing up my remote web/email servers (over ssh of course);
clonezilla - for ghosting my ssd boot drive (the ubuntu livecd version).
i could probably replace backintime+gpg with deja-dup, but i think its a bit too basic right now.
i'd like to get into lvm snapshots, but i don't think its as easy as it should be, certainly not an apple time machine or solaris zfs slider. i had considered making my $home directory into a git repository.
the thread is a bit old though....
