http://serverfault.com – I am currently needing to create a backup of something on my server. I zip the entire folder and it's about 1.5gb big...it has to be backed up every hour.... Alright so the size of the backup is getting bigger and bigger every day. So I need a way to backup better. I'd like some suggestions on how to do this. But what I was thinking was that every 3 days the third day backups are deleted. But one is kept. This would mean that my backup total is 73.5gb after 3 days of backups. Then I want to keep that third day backup for 1 week. So on the 10th day it is deleted. So about 85gb of total dat (HowTos)
