    Server to Desktop Full Backup

    I want just one thing.

    to have a full server backup on my desktop everyday.
    Pretty much just like the automated snapshot backup but in this case its not the snapshot but the server backup of all files on server to my desktop through a highly secured connection.


    Thanks.

    Set up a cronjob in your server to run a backup script everyday early in the morning, at the hour of less activity. For the script I would recommend rsync. For a secure connection to remote server it goes something like:
    rsync -a -e ssh source/ [email protected]:/path/to/destination/

    You would need to have ssh access to your desktop, or you might do it the other way around, setting the cronjob in your desktop and accesing the server. For more info read about the rsync parameters:

    I suppose in this situation you can use third part backup services and you will be patient.
    I suppose such action with your desktop will kill it soon and overload.

    If you are willing to pay for it, as SiberForum says, a third party backup service would be great, R1Soft is known to be more efficient and less resource consuming than rsync solution... but it is expensive.

    That is cheaper in any case if compared to the web hosting service

    You could install Ubuntu and rsync data from server to Ubuntu.
