    • rsnapshot handles the "how, what & where"
    • cron handles the "when"
  2. but wait, there's more
    • speed & space efficiency approach that of incremental backups
    • restores files as easily as from stand-alone backup
  3. best installed from your Operating System's media/repositories - alternatively
  4. essential - read their HOWTO
