What to use for incremental backup?

Postby mcastel » Fri Apr 11, 2008 10:22 am

Hi all,

I have the necessity to backup a complex directory structure (on an external usb disk), and to make - at periodic interval - backups only for the changed files (i.e. incremental backup?). Considering that I'd prefer to map the files/directories * as they are * for having the possibility to easy navigate among them (no compression or partition backup should be involved) which is the best/simplest program that can do such task ?

Thanks a lot in advance,
