I have a Minecraft server on a Ubuntu server machine and I'd like to backup it to Box.com or mega.co.nz maybe once a month or something and I don't want to download it to my comp and then upload it again. I've found some scripts that delete the local folder and then download the one from the web, but that's the opposite of what I want. I don't need it to automatically sync it, if I coul'd just run it from the console, that woul'd be great!

What about dropbox? it has perfect sync tool for linux. If you must sync to box.com you can use online sync-services like cloudhq.net, backupbox or wappwolf-dropbox-automator –  Khurshid Alam Jun 8 '13 at 15:29
I don't think the 2GB will be enough but I'll try the other stuff. Thanks Kurshid Alam –  franga2000 Jun 9 '13 at 18:09
You can make it up-to 18 GB (500 MB per referral). –  Khurshid Alam Jun 10 '13 at 8:37
