I'll give DevonNotes another shot. I couldn't see how to accomplish those things on my first go.

Thanks. Since my notes are mainly in TiddlyWiki and Tomboy, VoodooPad is a reasonable solution, despite the lack of hierarchy. And the developer seems to be active so that's a good sign. I looked at DevonThink/Note and it seemed to be no better than EagleFiler for my needs but with a lot of bells and whistles and a premium price.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just checked it out and it's very similar to EagleFinder, with similar constraints. EagleFinder has the same structural limitations but at least has internal linking: you can drag a note into another and creates a link.

I'll add the fundamentals, but it's heavily dependent on the specifics. For example, my file source is a DroboFS, upon which I can install the rsync daemon and tweak the config to suit my needs in this case, but it's not information that's generally relevant to the question I posed. The most useful general advice I can give is to search for "rsync daemon". The manual might be enough for some. Others will want to search for a step by step.

It is not difficult but does require obtaining a minimal understanding of the .conf file settings.

That sounds very much like rsnapshot's folder structure: Computer/daily.N/... However when I dry-ran it, I only saw CP and MKDIR commands so I don't see how it would preserve my hard-links. I appreciate your help, and will certainly make note of timecopy since I'll be switching from rsnapshot to Time Machine, however I have found a simpler solution to my current issue, which is to use an rsync deamon on the EXT2 source end rather than mount it locally.
