This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and duply to create encrypted (so that nobody with access to the backup server can read sensitive data in your backups) backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. duply is a duplicity wrapper script that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).

Create And Restore Partition Images With Partimage

Backups are usually made in one of two ways - either file-based which means that single files are backed up, often via synchronization and on an external disk, or image-based which means that a whole partition is stuffed into an image file that can be restored on the partition, containing everything there was on it.
