I use backuppc for our servers and some workstations and while it can appear hard its actually very easy to setup and forget. After some light tweaking things run themselves and neednt much attention at all. Best of all is that restoring backups and individual files to computers or other media is dead simple and easy.
Saves a ton in space on the backup server thanks to compression and pooling. I recommend it [Approved!]
NTFSCLONE works just dandy, thanks.
Tried NTFSCLONE out and it was a nice experience. Works like a charm, is fast and makes small images. A 30 GB disk with 20 GB of data on it became a 6 GB image with lzop compression. Its a really welcome addition for when one have to make clones of ntfs partitions.
