A free perl/rsync backup script
Authored by: ChiefTypist on Apr 14, '04 05:56:32PM
A lot of the comments in this thread indicate that some of you may not understand why rsync (and RsyncX for HFS) is a really good idea for network backups.

Here is a very good summary of why rsync kicks butt for backing up large filesystems over a network. When you are dealing with 100's of GB over a 10 Mbps (or slower) network, it's the only way to go.
