I hate tapes. They're messy, time-wasting, and nowadays, surprisingly expensive. Don't forget unreliable and inconvenient.
In my experience, if somebody has to be made to swap tapes routinely, then backups generally just aren't done routinely.
I've been using rsync for some time to mirror my primary webserver to a backup server on an independent network, to cover things in a worst-case scenario.
After trying a few other options, and not finding anything truly "good enough" for real backups, I wrote Backup Buddy.
What's New in This Release:??? If disk space is running low, the scripts now display an error instead of deleting the last remaining branch of an account.
??? This prevents you from having to resync an entire file tree in the event of disk space shortages.
System Requirements:??? PHP 4.x
??? rsync 2.5.7 or later, with RSA/KSA keys auto login to foreign host.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
