    1. take advantage of LVM snapshots. Take snapshots before and after an upgrade. In case, if the system is in unrecoverable position, rollback to the last snapshot from a system rescue LiveCD. A useful program for this, as well as regular system backups is timeshift

    1. Agreed, I use rdiff-backup because I found my rsync backups were getting cluttered with old files, and sometimes the lack of versioned backups was problematic. I'm a big fan of rdiff-backup. I don't think it actually leverages rsync, as such, but librsync. It's a great tool.
    2. I think that rsync is great but tools like dar, attic, bup, rdiff-backup or obnam are better. I use obnam, as it does "snapshot backups" with deduplication.
