Sounds quite interesting. From the Debian page
This Program uses a filesystem on a hard drive for incremental and full
backups. All Backups can easily be accessed by standard filesystem tools
(ls, find, grep, cp, ...)
Later Backups to the same filesystem will automatically be incremental, as
unchanged files are only hard-linked with the existing version of the file.
However, also from the same page : faubackup 0.5pre1-2
I'm afraid I like my backup tools a little more mature. But it is something
to keep in mind. It seems that the project uses hard links to implement
versioning, which is a cute idea but something in my waters tells me that
there may be issues with that - not sure what, just a stirring in the back
of my mind.
And of course there's the fact that there's very little mention of it on
Google apart from in Debian package lists :-)
