Rdiff-backup

https://rdiff-backup.net/
Backs up one directory to another

'rdiff-backup' combines the features of a mirror and an incremental backup by backing up one directory to another. The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special directory so you can recover files lost some time ago. 'rdiff-backup' operates in a space- and bandwidth- efficient manner over a pipe (like rsync): you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back up to a remote location, and only the differences get transmitted. It also handles symlinks, device files, permissions, ownership, etc., so it can be used on the entire file system.
