Need a decent easy to use program which will make use of the most efficient dump / tar commands to backup one drive to another on the same machine. Would like to schedule a weekly full backup and daily incremental backups. Hopefully it will store the backup in a compressed format in order to make best use of the backup drive space and can then restore a specific file or path of files without having to uncompress the complete backup. I hope the program is fast and efficient on CPU resources (as much as it can be).
I saw a program called Amanda but i'm not sure if this will make anything easier or not nor whether it is good for a single server situation.
1.) I need the right recommendation. Hopefully a program which will easily help me find the most recent file given a date range so I know what backup to pull it from (should I keep numerous backups on retention).
2.) Help installing this program on the server.
3.) Setting this up to schedule a weekly full and daily differential or incremental backups in the most efficient manner.
4.) Help to do a restore of a specific file or specific path of files so I am sure how to use it.
5.) How to properly delete backups on retention.
