Interesting: Time Machine for every Unix out there – IMHO.
But be careful with the hardlinks, as making a backup of the backup might fail:

As a follow up on my recent rsync on ESXi 5.1 post, as – when rsync in ESXi terminates the hard way because of a lost SSH connection – rsync can leave “hidden” files behind.
A small script that recursively shows the hidden files (those starting with a dot) starting from the current directory:
find . -iname ".*"
More of those (including deleting them, filtering for only files or only directories, etc) are at Linux / UNIX: Bash Find And Delete All Hidden Files Directories.
Note: don’t try to outsmart using something like piping through
grep "\/\." as that will also match files who’s parent directories are hidden.
