5 Free Linux Backup Solutions

Filed under
Software

If you’ve ever lost data due to a system crash, you know how crucial backing up important files can be. Here are 5 Linux Backup Solutions you should check out. I recommend you implement at least one of these Linux Backup Solutions before it’s too late.

rsync
There are tons of Linux users and administrators out there who have customized rsync scripts to handle incremental backups automatically on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. From the manual, rsync is described as a program that behaves in much the same way that rcp does, but has many more options and uses the rsync remote-update protocol to greatly speed up file transfers when the destination file is being updated.

mondorescue
Mondorescue backs up your GNU/Linux server or workstation to tape, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R[W], DVD+R[W], NFS or hard disk partition. In the event of catastrophic data loss, you will be able to restore all of your data [or as much as you want], from bare metal if necessary.
