I think this is the link Rob mentioned: http://mikerubel.org/computers/rsync_snapshots/index.html
You’re exactly right. That’s the one I started from so many years ago!
there is a problem in the feeds.
particularly in the link of the mp3 file in this episode. (mp instead of mp3)
but this http://feeds.feedburner.com/mintcastpodcast is just fine.
Minor spelling error 🙂
should be fixed now.
Do you edit the podcast in Audacity?
If you do, have a look at Analyze/Silence Finder……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..for all those nasty pauses!
Great show by the way.
Another good podcast, I enjoyed listening to it.
One important aspect of performing backups that was not covered in this podcast,verification.
Verify the backup is valid after creating it and then periodically reverify the backup.
Indeed, it produces a sick feeling to realize a backup is unusable when you need to use it.
Another good idea is to create a second verified copy of a backup, storing it in a different location from the original backup.
