Are you talking about full server backups or backing up just a few important files here and there?
If it's just a couple of targeted important files, I suggest writing a script and throwing it in cron. However, if you really need something more feature-rich:
Have you looked at amanda ?

HI, I had a question on incremental backup. We had an incremental backup every weekend. We did full backup every other week. That is one week incremental + full , the other week is incremental only. My question is for the first weekend incremental backup, it took for example 1h, but the second weekend incremental took almost 3 hours. It seems always this way, so I suppose it is not related to the data change. And we almost had some...

UDB v8 fp 6a on AIX Below is a manual incremental recover from compressed backup datasets. With external compress backup datasets, can it be coded to do an automatic incremental recover? The manual incremental recover works just fine, but having trouble getting the automatic incremental recover to work. Thanks for your help # INCREMENTAL BACKUP

Based on MK's TSI_SOON (http://www.trigeminal.com/)I've created a nifty little procedure that - whenever you compact you db you get an incremental backup copy. Given that you have a table with version information you get incremental backups on a per-version basis. SEE CODE BELOW Basic idea is: start TSISOON with the options: 1. "compact this db"

My boss was asking about incremental backups. I was scratching my head, thinking that the transaction log and a backup policy (script) for each record set (sorry about the archaic terminology) was the usual solution. But there is a some resistance against writing more code, so I'm wondering what the current state of affairs with postgresql in regards to incremental backup would be. A quick search of the lists produced the following:

Hi All, These days I was working on IBM DB2 database for windows with my .Net Application. Now, it was required to backup database created on one machine to the other machine.

We have recently moved a ClearQuest database to db2 V8 on linux. We take a full compressed backup on sundays (~400Mb) and compressed incremental/incremental delta other weekdays. What puzzles me is that despite low activity in the database, the delta backups are the same size as the full backups. Using db2look I've found that there is a number of tables with BLOBS in them. Would it help to move theses tables to a separate tablespace...

Hi all. Yesterday we decided to switch from full online nightly backups to the following schema: sun: full online mon-sat: incremental online. Important to note; we don't use deltas. Well it seems to work.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
