Some solutions Edit
- ibackup for /etc files
- rdiff-backup supports network but works in local mode also for incremental backups but you have an identical copy of the last backup that you can restore using only cp
- foc simple customizable
- backup2l no good docs online?
Backup on CD Edit
- multicd maybe the best solution if you want your files to be not compressed, but just put on CDs so that you can just mount the CD and broe it.
- CD Utils Other solution, i think it created a compressed file (to check), but this can be good for long names...
Backup on tape drive Edit
