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 ...

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 ...

The incremental features in gtar have a conceptional problem and cannot work correctly in all cases. When I tried to check the incremental features on star in 2004, gtar failed early and could not be tested at all. Did you try star's incremental bsckups? Freebsd uses star for zfs backups and this works fine since freebsd fixed some old kernelbugs.

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 ...

I'm using KeePass and I store the parameters used to create/mount the volume along with the password. You already composed a command line with all the options (note FNEK would just be another parameter in the options), so it would be reasonable to note the command and the overview of the parameters mount gives you in your password manager, because this way ...

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 ...

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 ...

Properly configured Duplicity should not do that. You might find these steps useful: Duplicity I know you are on Ubuntu, but I cannot find any suitable source for you. It should be universal.

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=""

I can confirm that opening the disc with VLC does bypass the protection. However, when using dd, I had to use this command after opening VLC (discovered by loading the disc and using the directory exposed in VLC). dd if=/dev/sr0 of=image_of_disc.iso Which is different from many posts I have read that say this command should work: dd if=/dev/cdrom ...
