What I'm looking for is a backup solution that:
- is easy to setup (user friendly)
- does automatic and instant backups whenever a file is added/deleted/modified (I don't want multiple copies/versions, just a mirror image)
- works on Linux and Windows
I'm running Ubuntu (9.04 64 bit) and Windows (Vista Home 32 bit) dual booting. I have a RAID setup via motherboard and formatted in Windows, and I also mount it when I run Ubuntu. I have a backup plan for my RAID on Windows (via Memeo backup that came with my external WD) that automatically backs up to an external drive. When I'm running in Ubuntu though, any changes I make to the RAID will not be backed up to that external because I don't have a Linux backup plan. I'm looking for something that will allow me to backup the same RAID no matter which OS I boot into.
What is the best way to go about solving this? Can I even do this since the path of the RAID is different between Linux and Windows (ie. Z:\Media on Windows and /media/Z on Ubuntu)?
If its rsync, what is the best GUI for it that will account for this?
I tried Crashplan but it doesn't do automatic backups, just scheduled ones, and it doesn't allow you to physically access the files I think it compresses them.
