Have to admit that I am do not backup on regularly. There are some files,

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.


Agreed. I use rsnapshot here. Very happy.
