I'm looking for a very simple tool that just makes a compressed tarball (.tgz) of my /home once a week and stores it under, say, /var/tmp/backup.
It should also run if I hadn't switched my machine on on that particular backup day.
I know I could do this with cron-jobs and shell scripts but why invent the wheel twice?
BTW: What's the best medium for long-time storage of backups? If the answer is "put it on a filehoster", then the tool should also encrypt the tarball, because I trust nearly no one.
