Re: benefits over rsync
Authored by: keaka on Sep 27, '05 03:19:57PM

rdiff-backup uses librsync, but rdiff-backup has the benefit of maintaining a version history. Every time rdiff-backup runs, it keeps track of changes to files and the date/time of the backup. Thus, you can retrieve the latest backup copy of a file, or you can grab a copy of the file as it existed at some other time in the past.
