Simple versioned backups with RsyncX
Authored by: Syco on May 24, '06 09:18:51AM

I had the same reaction you did, but I think what he wants is something like this:

Main Drive:
/foo
/bar
/baz

Let's say before backup2, he changes foo.

Backup Drive:
/backup1
/backup1/foo
/backup1/bar
/backup1/baz
/backup2
/backup2/foo
/backup2/bar <--- this is hardlinked to /backup1/bar, because it's the same file, and this preserves the entire backup structure
/backup2/baz <--- same as above
