Create incremental backups using an rsync shell script
Authored by: lucidsystems on Sep 06, '11 06:57:31PM

You may also find LBackup of interest. This is a backup wrapper for rsync which has been under development for 10+ years. It is available as a .pkg installer and the website offers a number of video tutorials as well as documentation to get you up and running.

When you install LBackup there are a number of example pre and post actions which make encrypting a backup with disk utility a snap as well as post action scripts to simplify distribution of geographically separated copies of your important backup (within a .sparsebundle image) to one or more remote server(s).

Finally, LBackup is released under the GNU GPL (just like rsync).
