What is the command to take incremental backup in Linux ?

Last updated by Portlin Admin

Rsync is a fast and extraordinarily versatile file copying tool.  It can copy locally, to/from another host over any remote shell, or to/from a remote rsyncdaemon.  

 

It offers a large number of options that control every aspect of its behavior and permit very flexible specification of the  set  of  files  to  be copied.  

 

It  is famous for its delta-transfer algorithm, which reduces the amount of data sent over the network by sending only the differences between the source files and the existing files in the destination.  

 

Rsync is widely used for backups and mirroring and as an improved copy command for everyday use.
