rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders, and destinations, both locally, your ipod or external firewire disk, or remote destination using ssh.

rsyncbackup has no GUI, but are based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary.

Warning: Basic terminal skills required. Please read the readme.html or look at the product homepage.
