Have to admit that I am do not backup on regularly. There are some files,
especially photos, that I save on cdrom but everything else I leave to the
chance that something happens to my hard drive and I loose all my setups
and personal files.
I want to change that. Its one of my good intentions for 2011 ;) .

I want to use a 2Gb usb stick. Looking into the backup programs in Yast I
am really confused which of the programs would be best suited for me. The
usb stick should not be inserted all the time.
Advice please.

I found rsnapshot to work very well. Both for Stick based as well as network
based setups.
