I have been thinking about how to reliable backup my different computers and laptops. One solution that I favoured was to use rsync to synd all my stuff to a central server (and use rsync again to sync the backup sets between two servers on different locations).

I thought about a neat frontend for, that would allow me to select the directories that would be backuped and a webfrontend for restore.

It turns out that (of course, I might say) somebody already has done this…

I’ll be installing BackupPC soon and see if it indeed does what it should. Browsing the site, it seems to do it all and a bit more!
