Easy Linux backups with Lucky Backup

"We would all like to think that, since we are using Linux, we will never really need a backup of our data. Now, let's look at this realistically. Even if your OS is 100% rock solid, with nary a nanosecond of downtime, that hardware running that OS can not possibly give 100% forever. Add to that the irresistible urge to upgrade hardware and you have the serious makings for the need to back up.

"When you need to back up where do you turn? Of course you could slap together a good ol' fashion Bash script using rsync, ssh, tar, and a few other Linux tools. But for those who haven't the slightest idea how to cobble together their own Bash scripts, what is there to use to back up all of that precious data? Those of you who don't want to "roll your own" or those just looking for something easy to use, you're in luck... thanks to Lucky Backup! Lucky Backup is a very user-friendly backup tool that will have you backing up remotely or locally in no time. Once you've seen Lucky Backup in action you will never think Linux backups are difficult again."
