What is the recommended backup tool for fedora 23. I have several CPF (OPEANFoam, and simFlow) programs that took hours to build. The program size is large. I have no data for each program. I can't get Deja ju to backup to a dvd.

I have a 500 mb external hd and a dvd burner to backup files to. I've tried to use autoarchiver, and I am not sure what I am doing. If I could create a series of dvd's of the programs that I've loaded in a compressed formate.

I found a backup/recovery program called mondo. When I went to install it using yum I received the following error message. I tried dnf install with no luck either. [tlcoons@localhost ~]$ su root Password: [root@localhost tlcoons]# yum install perl-MondoRescue-3.2.2-1.fc23.noarch.rpm Yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf install perl-MondoRescue-3.2.2-1.fc23.noarch.rpm'. See 'man dnf' and 'man yum2dnf' for more information. To transfer transaction metadata from yum to DNF, run: 'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate'

The "recommended" tool depends on your objective. A tool like deja-dup is going to guide you towards creating a repeating, incremental backup. This scheme is more conducive to backing up user data that changes regularly (like your Music or Documents). deja-dup wraps up duplicity, which has backend support for a lot of different targets (including S3 and B2).

It sounds like you're trying to create one-shot backups of some large directory structures. In that case, I'd recommend burning those directories to DVD manually; a tool like brasero can help you create a data DVD project and burn it.
