Default Backups. Full and differential

Just a general question making backups of ISPconfig.

Is there a program that could do full backup (no image) to another disk and after that differential backups to update that disk contents.

So if primary disk fails I can just switch it to another disk and everything is back to normal. That would be optimal.

Thanks,

Maxx

This is a good tutorial. But I want to make backups from hda to hdb so hdb would be identical with hda. No network backups just a local backup.

What about using the plain old "cp" command with preserved rights, like:

cp -prf /current/setup /mountpoint/hd2

If i remeber correctly, you can tell cp also to copy only modifierd files (timestamp of last change).
