    Using rsnapshot for about three years now. Nice introduction to rsnapshot. Thanks!
    Now I believe there’s not a word on how to recover / restore (as often on backup articles)…
    Here are tools I’d recommand you to check out:
    – I haven’t found rsnapreport.pl but there’s rsnapstat which is a fork in python [1].Gives a syntax error atm but I hope will be fixed
    – rsnapshot-once by Philipp C Heckel is freakin cool to insure consistent incremental backups [2] is the best wrapper

    @JJMacey, SystemBack does what you want. You might want to take a look, it’s a freaking kiss tool, that’s even able to backup a system on a live CD!
    Oh and Rtfazeberdee’s right on ksnapshot.
