Is is a home server, no tapes, no hard drive backups... I need a cheap
way of getting 20-50GB to multiple DVDs.
I don't need incremental (I guess that is harder to do on multiple dvd
mediums), just a full backup to dvds.
I have personal images and video files I need to backup.
Is there some tool in fedora, centos or rhel that does this?
