 Backing up with Konserve

Newsforge tells us about Konserve.

"So Konserve works, but it lacks any refinements that might make it more useful than a tar command in a crontab file. For instance, there's no option to choose full, incremental, or differential backups -- full is your only choice. You can't pick specific directories or files to include or exclude. Once in progress, you can't interrupt a backup job. Konserve provides no log file of what it has done. Restore options are non-existent; your only choice is to restore the entire archive, which is annoying when you only need a single file you deleted by accident."
