My opinion is that there are several scripts out there, backup2l being one
of them, for the standard home PC. Yet none of them are on the SUSE Linux
distribution. Not perfect scripts, but good scripts.
If I compare it to the rest of tools available and look at the importance
of backups (and recovery) I think it to be strange there are no better
backup tools on SUSE Linux available.

I had the "luck" to test the recovery of backup2l and it worked great.
Both for a single file as for a whole directory. You have a good point.
Recovery is more important then backup.

How do you do that? Do you use a script, or do you just copy stuff there?

Not sure what you mean here.
