I'm using backuppc on debian wheezy, the backup service never completes the first initial backp. I keep getting the "Parent read EOF from child: fatal error!" error. Tried to look it up, doesn't seem to tell me much about my problem. Tried nearly every solution on google. I'm very close to giving up on backuppc.
So my question is not only how to fix it, but also "should I try another backup software"?
rsnapshot didn't work for me.
I basically need the simplest form of incremental backup software.
