I use histbackup:
Disclaimer: I wrote this particular script; there are plenty of others
like it available.
It is a wrapper for rsync which accrued dated directory snapshots in an
archive area. Unchanged files are hard linked from old archives to the
newer ones, so costing no additional disc space.
These days you can almost do this directly with rsync's --link-dest
directive. See "man rsync" ffor details.
So in your archive directory you make subdirectories by date. The first
one is just a copy as normal. You update the future archive directories
with rsync using the above option (and the usual: -aH).
