easy backups on linux: timevault

There's a nice review of timevault here.
I'm just configuring it myself. Will report back.

BTW, SFFS is coming to linux too!

ATM I cannot open that page, it seems the server is down or has other problems.

Looks cute enough, but is it smart?

I use rsnapshot for my linux server backup needs, and while it's definitely not as usefriendly as timevault seems to be, it's pretty smart - it doesn't hash filenames, etc., so I can use whatever filemanager of my choice (including plain old cp :)) to copy a folder like "weekly.3" somewhere, and I have all the files from that period, not just the modified once. Works through the use of hardlinks, it's basically apple's TimeMachine for *u*x.
