Falko Timme writes "As neither human nor computers are perfect (humans err / computers may fail) it is quite obvious that a good backup system will prevent from too much damage once the computer may go down. This could be either because the harddrive is failing or because of hackers or because you accidentally deleted something important. This tutorial will show you how to automate backups automatically in an incremental snapshot-style way by using rsync."
