The most robust medium is HDD. Dedicate a complete drive to backup, preferably
on a different machine or an external drive. Rdiff-backup is good because you
can browse the backup directly eg if you just want to examine/restore a
particular file. Rdiff-backup stores reverse diffs so you can also get access to
previous versions of a file. You can run Rdiff-backup as a cron job every night.

Can you paste some sample rdiff output image of this?
