Home PC Ubuntu

Data Merge and Backup

When ever I switch from one Linux distro to another, I make a backup of my home folder.  Sometime I forget to pull everything back in because of one thing or another.  Plus I have back ups on my data files from Windows XP floating around on the USB drive as well.  I finally merged most of the data files together, deleted the duplicate files and started to backup using the following command: rsync -avh /home/george /media/New Volume/backup 04-19-2009.  Of course having USB 1.1 ports on this PC makes backing up a real long process.  Currently I have 38.21 GB of videos, pictures, music, documents, ISO, and other junk.  Maybe someday I will get rid of the stuff I really don’t need or move a large chunk to DVD storage.
