Hi Francois,

 I am familiar with rsnapshot and have been using it/backuppc but I guess hammer snapshot is much faster and that rsnapshot when the directory has many files.
Also when there are many small changes to many files spread over the day rsnapshot will store all the changed file as they are induvidually and will take more space if I take a snapshot every 5 mins.

Thanks for the tip :-)
