I was of the impression that Kdar would do exactly what I want; increnetal backups, the ability to go back to any previously stored file, variable filesizes etc etc.
The other computers are windows and it is windows and Linux files that I want to backup.
The reason I would like to use Linux for the job is that I know Linux is tolerant of windows files but Windows is not tolerant of Linux files.
rsync would not be for me because that would only keep the latest version of a file, I would not be able t ogo back to a specific date/ version of a file.
I am reluctant to start setting up scripts to run in CLI mode because all I want is to set the machine up once and just leave it toget on with it 24/7, or whenever I switch it on.
I have managed to load ubuntu server on the machine but it does run very very slowly. If someone has ready made backup scripts that I can copy this might be a quick and easy way to go.
