From man cp (the GNU version, found on Linux and Cygwin) --backup[=CONTROL] make a backup of each existing destination file -b like --backup but does not accept an argument Example touch 1 2 cp -bv 2 1 ‘2’ -> ‘1’ (backup: ‘1~’) Note that this does not check for existing backup files, i.e. if 1~ exists it will be overwritten. Using ...

This question is a little vague, as you do not state what aspects of Time Machine you find important. I use Back In Time, which features incremental backups, based on rsync and hard-links. Hence, each additional backup only uses the amount of space for the files that have changed. However, you can easily browse through previous snapshots, either with a ...

From man find +n for greater than n, -n for less than n, n for exactly n. -mtime n File's data was last modified n*24 hours ago. See the comments for -atime to understand how rounding affects the interpretation of file modification times. So the correct line to backup files modified more than 90 days ago, will be $ find /path/to/files ...

You create the partition with the bigger size (done), then restore the backup to the larger partition without any change to either. Then resize the copied file system to the partition size (use ntfsresize), that will work. http://linux.die.net/man/8/ntfsresize PS: You may need to check the partition table and set the same attributes (partition type, ...

I'd tar and compress before I sent over SSH - the encryption will just slow things down if you try SCP or similar natively. tar cvzf - /path/to/files | ssh user@host.com -C -c blowfish "cat - > bigtarball.tgz" If you want smarted things like synchronising collections of files after the copy, go grab the free version of Bittorrent Sync at ...

Yes, this is easily possible. You could copy every single file from your system to the USB flash drive, and then copy it over to the partition you desire to have it on. An easier method, which I recommend, would be to take a tarball of your entire system and then extract it to the partition you desire. The last thing you would need to do is make sure that ...

You should try GooBook, it supports oauth2 and also has a query command which prints what you've searched to stdout $ goobook query foo foo@bar.com Joe 'Foo' Smith Group Name It also creates a cache file with I don't know which format which dumps all the address book in a one place whenever you want. It's probably worth adding that goobook ...

Instead of piping everything to /dev/null (which may leave you without a clue of what happened if something goes wrong), you can pipe your scripts to log files like this: 30 * * * * backup.sh > ~/logs/backup.log And to stop getting mails, just set the MAILTO variable to an empty string at the beginning of your crontab file: MAILTO=""
