 Automated Backups with Existing Tools

MacDevCenter talks about how to use existing command line tools to backup a Mac OS X machine .

"Apple already provides a tool to make backups -- ASR (Apple Software Restore), which allows one volume to be cloned onto another. In addition to this, we also have the multifunctional hdiutil, which can create, mount, and unmount disk images. With these and a handful of standard Unix tools, we are well on our way to a happy ending."
