Talk:A simple backup scheme using rsnapshot
Move to base config file
I think that for correctly rotate rsnapshot need to know all the "intervals" now "retain" params. As stated in http://rsnapshot.org/howto/1.2/rsnapshot-HOWTO.en.html#how_it_works
- Each subsequent time rsnapshot is run with the hourly command, it will rotate the hourly.X directories, and then “copy” the contents of the hourly.0 directory (using hard links) into hourly.1.
- When rsnapshot daily is run, it will rotate all the daily.X directories, then copy the contents of hourly.5 into daily.0.
So probably we need to move them all in the base configuration file. --Bfx81 19:03, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
