I use rsnapshot for backup on secondary harddisk. It takes incremental
backups and uses hard links - so it looks like a full backup every
hour, day, week or month, but indeed the same file only exist once in
the whole backup. To restore simply use cp.
I run it in a script which mounts the backup harddisk read only afterwards,
so a user can restore files himself.
