The solution was embarrassingly simple: Much due to a comment I read when researching the problem, I thought you were supposed to specify the character set in the order of transformation; but it seems as that is not the correct syntax. Rather, one should always use --iconv=utf-8-mac,utf-8 when initialising the rsync from the mac, and always use ...

/proc is a virtual filesystem that represents the state of the live system, including processes and their virtual memory maps, so, yes, it's inappropriate to back it up unless you're debugging the kernel or something. Other such runtime-only virtual filesystems are /sys, /run, and /dev. Given your existing back up contains some garbage from /proc and ...

If not already done, you have to ensure that root loging via SSH on 192.168.151.123 is permitted. Root login is denied by default. Secondly, you have to set a root password, which is also not set by default. Permit root login: --- ./sshd_config_2014-10-12 2014-10-21 15:00:24.354489498 +0200 +++ /etc/ssh/sshd_config 2014-10-21 15:03:03.925036747 +0200 ...

Do you know the password of root at 192.168.151.123? First command, you will copy file from local to 192.168.151.123 as root, then you have to type the password of root. Second command, you will use your username and password, so it works like charm.

In response to #2: First you should back up all your important files to a separate disk. Then, if you don't have an extra IDE port, see if you have an available SATA port. If you have a usable SATA port, I suggest you try to clone your 20GB IDE hard drive to a larger SATA hard drive. Upon a successful clone, you should be able to boot Ubuntu 14.04 on your ...

You can sync files inside two direcotries by: rsync -rv /path/to/directory1/ /path/to/directory2 Doing rsync -rv /path/to/directory1 /path/to/directory2 will create directory1 inside directory2, like this /path/to/directory2/directory1/[files] You can dry run using -n switch, like this rsync -rnv /path/to/directory1/ /path/to/directory2 Reference: ...

For question 2, I assume you have at least 2 IDE ports ... else there is no way to do your copy I'd put in the two drives then boot off a live CD/USB disk. The safest/clearest way to then copy the partition would be using gparted.

There are many distributed file systems available for Linux. These are more geared towards server applications like cloud computing, and include the ability to mirror data between computers as well. Free options include Lustre and GlusterFS. Using software RAID is probably the most common way to do what you want though.

First of all: Do not use the old hdd as a backup medium. Reasoning Mainboard fried -> HDD possibly not 100% OK (depends on the reason the mainboard gave up) HDD already has some hours on the counter and is likely to fail sooner than later 1TB of data will not even fit once on a 80GiB HDD, let alone multiple generations of backups or incrementals Other ...

No, there shouldn't be any adversary consequences of backing up to an additional hard drive (except increased energy consumption, wear, and decreased performance during backup of course). Unless you do something fancy (like some proprietary backup solutions), you'll be able to treat your backup drive as a regular storage medium with a common file system. If ...

Deja-dup is a graphical front end for the program duplicity. Typing man duplicity into console gives me this, of note: duplicity [restore] [options] [--file-to-restore <relpath>] [--time time] source_url target_directory So it looks like you'll want to try duplicity <url to your backup> <where you want to restore to> So if you wanted ...

Use losetup to attach the whole disk image. # sudo losetup /dev/loop2 sda.img Then use mdadm to create an md device and block devices will be created for all of the partitions. # sudo mdadm --build --level=0 --force --raid-devices=1 /dev/md2 /dev/loop2 mdadm: array /dev/md2 built and started. Now you should see the partition devices. ...

Finally found the solution. It is a known issue with version 0.4.7 (the one in the repos). The author has updated to version 0.4.8 that solves this problem. You can find the explanation at this url and the deb files for 0.4.8 at the project webpage. Thanks Loukas for a very useful software.

This may be a stupid question, but does the directory NUVOL inside the mounted drive exists? If so, does it have read/write permissions?

OS X 10.5 has rsync 2.6.9 but the iconv option is only available in rsync 3.x.... To update rsync on your mac you could use macports (installation instructions). A Macport (and Homebrew) tutorial is available here.

Our team uses sublime text editor. So, after googling a bit here and there I found out sublime AutoBackup package and installed it through the package control manager of sublime. This extension/package automatically takes backup of the file user is editing and it is also completely customizable like you can have backup for every second (which we are using) ...

I was having a similar issue under OSX, and Glutanamate's answer didn't help. Some of the files differ by an hour; this might be because I tend to cross timezones relatively often. Other files are off by a day or even a month. I'm not sure why this is. Checksumming on some of the files with widely differing timestamps shows that they are, indeed, ...

Backups is kind of complicated, because everybody has different needs. Clonezilla is an option, as you mentioned, but for a desktop system something lighter like Duplicity or Deja-Dup might be a better fit, as smaller, incrimental backups can be stored on a remote server or an external drive. Tarsnap is a lighter, secure alternative. If you've got ...

Do you use some flavour of Linux on the server? Using a journaling filesystem on the server should mitigate the issue of lost files (Windows has NTFS, Linux has ext3, ext4 and others). Using a UPS would be even better in this case as computers tend to break when frequently losing power. There are inexpensive UPS available worldwide. Taking full backups ...

For your MySQL databases, you must first dump the data using mysqldump, transfer the dump and then insert it into the backup system (mysql << my_dump) Alternatively, you could use replication (see: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/replication.html) but I guess it would be overkill in your case.
