  1. Watch a folder and automatically sync changes to a remote system with rsync / ssh mv. Very neat. Handy for backup syncing.
  2. Resume scp with curl, very smart... `curl -C - --pubkey ~/.ssh/ --key ~/.ssh/key sftp://user@host:/path/to/my_precious_iso.iso -o my_precious_iso.iso

  3. Tutorial on how to have launchd automatically run scripts (such as rysnc) when USB devices are plugged in, automated backup when a USB drive is plugged in for example.
  4. Tutorial on how to set up OSX to automatically backup when a USB drive is plugged in. Neat.
  5. One strategy to backup encrypted ecryptfs data as suggested by the author of ecryptfs. Useful and simple. Backup the metadata and the raw files with rsync.
  6. A different strategy to find an encrypted filename from an unencrypted filename under ecryptfs (Ubunut's encrypted home directory system).
  7. Interesting article including a script that figures out a mapping from unencrypted filenames into ecryptfs encrypted filenames. Potentially useful.
  8. Handy little post. If .svn/tmp dirs are msising, say excluded from backup, one line solution `find -iname ".svn" -exec mkdir {}/tmp \;`
  9. Nabble provide a forum front end interface to mailing lists. This is the rsync (hosted by samba) mailing list. Searchable, very useful.
  10. rsnapshot is a perl utility that creates (illusory) filesystem snapshots using rsync and hardlinks (to save space). Every time a file is changed, a new copy is created, otherwise a hard link is used. It works hourly, daily or monthly.
  11. Rsync to S3 is a service which combines EC2 and S3 to provide a bandwidth efficient S3 based backup mechanism. It takes advantage of the free bandwidth between EC2 and S3 to overcome the limitations of S3 for rsync backup.
  12. Duplicity performs incremental, encrypted backups onto a range of interfaces including scp, ftp, rsync, WebDAV and Amazon S3. It uses standard tar, rsync and GPG tools, so the data can be recovered manually.
  13. A comparison of Amazon S3 backup tools, a mixture of Windows, Linux and Mac options.
