We have one Windows server, which is there for many reasons. Taking backup on windows can be pain, one has to rely on third-party software. We use DeltaCopy, which relies on rsync (an awesome piece of open-source software), statically linked Cygwin libraries/binaries.
It is easy to setup and doesn’t conflict with any existing Cygwin installation.
DeltaCopy has saved us from many disasters(disk failure, etc.), some of those happened during last one month. Had we not taken daily, weekly and monthly backup snapshots, we would have lost months of work.
Thanks to DeltaCopy and developers/company/community behind it. This post is my way of thanking them, by spreading some words.
Using DeltaCopy is very intuitive, however, feel free to leave comments, if you need any help setting it up.
