Great backup util. Wonder how hard it would be to have it compress files as part of the cron?
Am using it on SME 7 beta 8.

Hi great post,

Just a quick question, I'm quite new to linux and SME.

If I want to backup the entire drive so that if I ever need to use the backup I can just put SME back on from one backup and everything will return to how it was wat would I do?

Failing that, what would be best to backup if I needed to make sure all profiles email (using fetchmail) in a sense, if anything goes wrong all I have to do install SME again and the other programs and then the rsnapshot back.

Any tips or advice would be brill
