Box Backup is an FREE, completely automatic on-line backup system for UNIX.

??? A backup daemon runs on systems to be backed up, and copies encrypted data to the server when it notices changes
??? Only changes within files are sent to the server, just like rsync
??? Old versions of files on the server are stored as changes from the current version
