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.
