I am setting up a personal backup system. My idea is to produce a full snapshot of my directory tree regularly. In between snapshots, I want to upload incremental files, i.e. binary diffs of the directory tree.
I’m using pax as my snapshot format, created by GNU tar. For the incremental format, I’m thinking of using
rsync “batch mode” but I wanted to ping lobsters in case there is a better and more standardized alternative. Is there?
