hello, i'm looking for a reliable program to do backups to my desktop. (from the remote linux server....to my desktop )
Preferably an FTP program that I can login to with Root access.... but most importantly, a program that will only copy over changed / new files after the first full backup.
Thats the biggest problem I have currently.. when i do it with WinSCP, I usually backup the WHOLE entire /vhosts/ directory each and everytime. And its 2 GB's in size....takes forever when copying to desktop.
I would only like changed / new files to be copied over after the first full backup.
Maybe WinSCP already has this option , I just haven't seen it yet ?
Did you look at rsync? Although this application was originally developed for *nix systems, there are ports for Windows available. What this application does is keeping the data on remote computers in sync, only transferring changed information.
