Backing Up

August 14th, 2006

I finally ran a successful backup, which took 16 hours to grab ~750 GB of data. Future runs will be much shorter, as rsnapshot will only be grabbing changes. Scripts now run the backup when the machine is powered on, then email me the results and power the machine down. Next up, getting the machine to power up without me asking. I guess I need to invest in a WOL network card.

    Lucky you that your hard drive didn’t crash mid-back-up like Matt Perry’s!!
