Re: Tape backup

Fedora core 2 is Linux so it will run Amanda, Mondo, tar, rsync, dump, ...

If you do a search in this forum (search on backup linux gives 50 notes files )

In the results of this search you will find many valid pointers and the responses to your questions.

I use Mondo and a mixture of tar, rsync in crontab to do this, but its realy home cooking.. and to specific, well it workes for me.


Smile I will feel the difference
