I have a desktop running Ubuntu. My media collections go to an external HDD, plugged directly into the PC. This HDD is formatted with NTFS, so I can temporarily plug the HDD to a Windows PC and read the data from there, if I happen to need it.
I want to backup both the storage HDD and the home folder of the computer to a second external HDD. I want to use something more comfortable than pure rsync, and it looks like dirvish is a good solution. However, I read somewhere that it will only create hardlinks if the source and target device have the same filesystem. This is unfortunate, because I have two sources with two different filesystems, the Ubuntu home folder on Ext4 and the media collection on NTFS.
Is there a backup system which doesn't suffer from this problem? Or do I have to create different partitions with different filesystems and manage two separate backup processes?
