Okay, on my server, the way I backup my files is I add a directory to a .tar.gz archive. What I want to know, is there anyway by Cron, to make a permanent archive, and only update files that have been changed?

Hi,
tar provides an incremental option you can pass, which may work -- although I've never tried it before.
