An rsync-based backup solution for easy backups
Authored by: miggins on Sep 28, '08 08:00:13PM
Whatever software you end up using for backup, test it using this tool: http://www.n8gray.org/code/backup-bouncer/. This can give you a quick and easy way to actually know if your backup software can handle all the types of metadata Mac OS X supports.

Personally, I've been using rsync 3.0.3 since it now supports everything Mac OS X has: http://www.bombich.com/mactips/rsync.html.
