[SOLVED] seek: backup tool for single user home desktop

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi slack brethren and sisteren, I have a home desktop, not running servers, nor networks and I'm looking for the simplest option to backup my system and data files once a week to an external device. At the moment, I can't even get Slackware to recognize the device, though when I used Ubuntu (ages ago) it seemed to pick it up automatically. Questions: 1. could someone recommend a light, easily configurable (text or gui) backup tool, preferablly made to run on slack; and 2. could that, or some other someone, make a few comments from their experience at getting slackware64-current to recognize (HowTos)
