Can one do incremental backups from a server with Filezilla and if so how?

I dont think you can do it with filezilla.

You could look at rsync if you just want to copy over the files that are new/changed. It is on all the linux distros, and I think there is also a couple windows ports.

If you are using windows, I am not sure if the rsync client can run in server mode to receive the files. If you are using linux, then you are all set.

yet another reason to use Total Commander :) – Molly7244 Jan 4 '10 at 0:49
Hmmm. I might look into that. I do dual-boot Ubuntu (9.10 at the moment)... – Nathaniel Jan 4 '10 at 5:17
