Subversion as backup system...

I just started playing with svnsync and it really works pretty well and I am thinking on replacing some of my backups currently done with rsync by using subversion. A few big pro's

  • Always have every status of your data back
  • Efficient algorithm in transferring data, read this on the NetBSD list
  • Very easy to create multiple backups and now the exact status of each of them

  • Got meta data on actions, so might able to analyze trends and problems
