Yes I'm using windows to back up my Fedora disk.

I'm just starting to use Linux.

So I feel a little safer with windows.

What would your recommend for Linux?

I like BackupMyPC from Stomp. I've used this w/ numerous DVD burners and
have found it to be fast and capable.

There is also this free software (which I haven't tried and I can't vouch
for):

Of course, this is assuming Windoze. I assume that because I think
Retrospect is Windoze only, but maybe I'm wrong.



Thanks!
Phil

I just purchased a DVD recorder. Its on a XP machine.

I can map my Fedora server and copy all my music files.

I can also access my DVD from the server.



My question is what is the best program to use for backup?

I am checking out Retrospect that came with My burner at this time.

rsnapshot is excellent, and it is what I use for doing my weekly backup
from my primary HD to my backup HD in my server. It's also superb for
doing backups over the network.

However, I think you will find that it isn't the solution you are
looking for if you want to burn DVD backups (as was stated at the
beginning of this thread). Personally, I think Linux's biggest shortfall
is in good tools for burning discs. I still jump over to windows for
doing that...
