irregular backups with rsnapshot (and rsnapshot_ii)
As stated in the last post I bought a big 2TB HDD for backups. My only computer right now is a Laptop so regular backups are not possible (due to not having the hdd with me all the time)
I needed another way for easy full and incremental backups without relying to much on specific intervals.
I came across rsnapshot, which - well - does depend on regular intervals. But here comes rsnapshot_ii, a small wrapper script for rsnapshot.
It "fixes" these two problems the author (and I) had:
- Backups with irregular intervals.
- Missed backups.
I uploaded my config here (gist):
And as promised in the last post the script I use to mount the HDD: mount-backup
