You can have several backups when you use the rsync option --link-dest. rsync will create another directory with your backup tree, hardlink the files that didn't change, and only copy the changed files. That way you don't use twice the space. For excample: rsync -a --delete --link-dest=../previous_backup source_directory/ backup You have to use a ...

I would advise to split backup and sync. Use for example rsnapshot for your backups and lsync, owncloud, git or rsync (depending on needs and situation) for syncing the data to work on them.

ps aux | grep deja kill <pid of "deja-dup --backup --auto"> Immediately the backup button becomes active. This should be reported as a bug as the frontend should either have a button to terminate running backups or automatically reconcile concurrent backups.

I see you have started already excluding certain paths from your backup, with --exclude. One of the most useful rsync flags I have found is -F which simply allows you to place such lists of exclude file-patterns anywhere in your source tree. For example, I have many directories where there are C files I want to backup but not the objects, or git ...

It will work. Look at man rsync and the --update option. If you use -u it will totally skip files that have a newer timestamp on the destination. If you don't use -u it will checksum the files and sync them if there's a difference (there will be in your case). So don't use -u in your rsync invocation. Also, why not try to be empirical? Instead of just ...

OP has solved the problem: Thanks for replying. I have re-evaluated my strategy a little. I've just put a button in my launcher that runs the second script. This is much simpler and accomplishes the same thing.

Partitions are visible to users in the group disk. If you were in that group before you should still be if you saved and restored files in /etc. You can see which groups you are in with the commandid. To add group disk to your user id do sudo usermod -aG disk $USER You will need to login to see the change.

The easiest way of copying all of your standard Ubuntu data files off the disk is to log on to TTY1 and: Do a ls /dev/?d* Insert an external disk, and do another ls /dev/?d* Subtract the output from step 1 from the output from step 2 and you should be left with the device name of the external HDD. This should take the form of XdYN where X is s or h ...

The default setup of ecryptfs on Ubuntu mounts the user's directory only after successful login (with the key derived from the user's password). If the user is not currently logged on, even root doesn't have access to the unencrypted version of the files. For encrypted files, check the @.Private@ directories under the @home subvolume.

If all of your data is on the main partition you selected to be used as / (file system root) during the installation, that one should be already mounted when you select recovery mode in GRUB menu and then drop to a root shell. It's just mounted as read-only, so you have to mount -o remount,rw / before you have write access to it. To mount all partitions ...

One of the "security" measures in NFS is rootsquash being a default option. With rootsquash, root on a client system has the same privileges as the nobody user (or some other assigned, impotent, account depending on the exact configuration). Accordingly, using sudo on NFS actually weakens your access privileges. So, don't use sudo on NFS. Set your ...
