Even though seeing the word
attic reminds me too much of leaking roofs and CVS, I've switched to using the attic backup tool.
I want a simple system which will take incremental backups, perform duplication-elimination (to avoid taking too much space), support encryption, and be fast.
I stopped using
backup2l because the
.tar.gz files were too annoying, and it was too slow. I started using
obnam because I respect Lars and his exceptionally thorough testing-regime, but had to stop using it when things started getting "too slow".
I'll document the usage/installation in the future. For the moment the only annoyance is that it is contained in the Jessie archive, not the Wheezy one. Right now only 2/19 of my hosts are Jessie.
