Thanks DebianJoe, fatmac & the3pun15h3r for a warm welcome. Only a few hours aware from have a #! fresh install on my main machine .... currently waiting for my alternate (i.e rsync) backup to finish
I'm looking for a cloud backup provider that uses rsync. I have used rsync.net for many years but their pricing model isn't keeping up with the rest of the market and I'm looking at several tens of gigabytes of storage.
I've been using Eric's KDE packages since last June or so, and have been using the same command the whole time to download them. But today I went to get KDE 4.4.5 for the fresh 13.1 install I just did on my wife's laptop and KDE 4.4.85 (hell, yeah!) for my -current box. In both cases the command returned the same error.
I have a main backup server running rsnapshot, with ~2TB of backups stored on it. After the nightly backups, I copy the contents of the rsnapshot directory to an offsite server, using rsync -aH --delete /source /dest. However, this seems to copy the entire contents of the backup directory every night, as the offsite copy takes ~9 hours to complete.
