Scripts to create encrypted backups to online services
Authored by: mastige on Sep 29, '07 07:28:13PM

Standard UNIX tools do have their limitations. I made regular use of rsync to backup my home folder, including my Parallels folder. When my Windows system became corrupted, I discovered that the rsync backup was also useless, presumably because of lack of copying of resource forks or other important data. That left me with no usable copy and a Windows installer telling me that I had exceeded my maximum installs. An expensive lesson. Carbon Copy Cloner and the MacFuse solution makes all kinds of sense for important data.
