I use Cygwin and a Perl script that uses ntbackup to backup C:\Documents and
Settings to a second hard drive. I then run another Perl script on my Debian
3.1 backup server which copies out the backup(s) using rsync over ssh (Cygwin is
running sshd). When I ran my machines 24x7, everything was done by cron. Now I
run the scripts manually each night before I shut everything down.
