    I need a simple to use backup solution that will do just three things:


    1. Back up my computer to an off-site server on a scheduled basis

    2. Allow me to select which files to back up

    3. Back up files without overwriting a previous backup (e.g., I want to back up today's "documents" folder without overwriting yesterday's "documents" folder). Space on the server is not an issue.

    TIA!

    :eek: Now I feel like an idiot. I already ready have CCC. It never occurred to me it would do anything more sophisticated than clone my HD to a new HD when I wanted to up to a larger drive.

    EDIT: According to the CCC website forum, CCC cannot backup via FTP to an offsite, non-Mac server. The server I would back up to is Linux.

    It will backup to a network share. Can't you just add the Linux volume as a network share and just backup to it that way? You don't necessarily care that it is FTP do you?

    I use dropbox, but try sugarsync. You get to pick which folders get backed up so you can check your system files I believe.

    Maybe Chronosync will do what you need?
    It has the option to connect to remote volumes.
