Yeah I backup the rdiff-backup-data directory offsite. Its important for me to make sure the diffs are offsite as well. I only keep -3B backups offsite of the nearline backup. to exclude things, I have found the things like --exclude /mnt/backups/rdiff/**/rdiff-backup-data to be useful

Hi Dave,

So with your method, do you actually end up backing up the rdiff-backup-data directory, or do you use an exclude rule?

I could lay my backups out like this:

And then just rdiff-backup the whole /mnt/backups/rdiff directory offsite, but I would want to exclude all the <machinename>/rdiff-backup-data directories in the interests saving space and time.

Do you know what exclude rule I would need? Exlclude rules make my head hurt :(
