i have a small samba server with a Raid 1 and a System Harddisk, the hole samba data's are on the Raid 1. i have got a HP DDS 3 Tape Drive and i want to backup the data of the raid 1 every day on a tape. my first idea was, to realize it with the tar command, but other persons will have some problems to recover files, when i'm in holiday or i'm ill. I search now for a good backupsoftware for linux.
Can anyone help me and give me some names of good software, it would be nice, when the software has a graphicsurface, the software should be freeware. sorry for my bad english, but i hope anyone ca help me
