backintime




Greetings all;

2 instant questions about backintime, which I just now installed to make 
small backups as I work on some machine config files, and some gcode to 
go with linuxcnc.

This after haveing suffered the of having xmlindent nissfire and left me 
with an empty xml file of over 250 loc I've had to reinvent from 
scratch.

A round of shingles to the author of that manpage.  Now I know its a 
filter you pipe input to, but thats not mentioned in the manpage.

Anyway, I want to setup A) a directory in my home page on that machine
B) two profiles to watch 2 directories and their subdirs as two separate  
progile's.  which I've done, both useing the same /home/gene/backup dir 
for the snapshots.
But all I can get out of backintime-gnome is that the backup location is 
invalid.

Its a terabyte drive, 3% used, what the heck is its problem? I own the 
backup dir and everything to be stored in it. I don't intend to ever 
backup the system, I have amanda doing that daily for almost 21 years 
now.

Am I using the wrong tool?, it certainly feels like it.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
