    77We recommend that you use backupninja and rdiff-backup. Below are instructions for how to get started with these two programs.

    9 NOTE: in it's current release backupninja has no easy way to limit bandwidth (bandwidth limiting will be available in future releases). That means that when you run the backup it will probably take over your Internet connection :(. That's not a problem if you schedule your backup for the middle of the night and it only runs for 15 minutes or so (only copying the files that have changed). However, it can be a problem during the initial upload. Please contact support so we can agree on the best method for the initial copy.

     12Say you want to limit backupninja 50Kbps down and 70Kbps up. Instead of running
     13
     14backupninja -n
     15
     16you can run
     17
     18trickle -d 50 -u 70 backupninja -n
     19}}}

     113A few additional thoughts from abh:
     114
     115If you're getting funky errors, definitely ask for help here, but try making sure you're backing up to the right directory. I wasn't!
