We all know how important backups are. I'm looking to build a new backup system sometime this spring, but for now I'm just rsyncing to an external drive. What is your solution?

@mike for $job I use bacula (to tape) and rsync (to ZFS on-site snapshot server). for $job I use TSM and for home I use tar -> external USB -> office. It's all size and cost dependent.
@mike Borg backup is very, very good and also the fastest of all the things I tried on a ~300Gb set of files.
I'm bad and just do it once in a while when I plan to install a new OS and manually move things to a flash drive or another computer. Starting a regular backup routine is on my list, though.
@mike Give a try to the backuppc package. I have installad it on a single board computer that backups my sensible directoryes all over the network an offers a suitable html interface at http://localhost/backuppc
I f_cking hate Deja Dupe.
@mike on PC I use Nextcloud. In server I use rsnapshot script, so basically rsync.
@mike The 3-2-1 idea is nice. You should have at least 3 backups, on 2 different medias and 1 backup should be offsite.
I'm using restic for stuff where deduplication helps and rsync for other cases.
@mike duplicity is pretty neat
@mike I use a combination of rsync and btrfs snapshots. I've tried borgbackup and rsnapshot, but keep coming back to my tried and tested script.
I dont use any ready made solution. I rsync to an external HDD any files I'm working on or need immediate recovery of. I also rsync the files to a BD-RE.
All other files are put into DAR archives with parity and possibly encryption depending on the files. The DAR files are stored on a HDD and written to BD-R with the most important being uploaded to Amazon S3.
Some files are to be archived. They end up in DAR archives on BD-R and uploaded to Amazon Glacier.
