obnam is, at least for me, a very new and hany tool. obnam was brought to my attention by an article on 'pro-linux.de'.

an initial backup can be created using:

 obnam backup --repository /mnt/backup/bude-store/ /storage

since i had some issues with the usb controller (to which i attached a 1tb 3,5" disk) i needed to override the lock, done by typing:

 obnam force-lock None --lock-timeout=3 backup --repository /mnt/backup/bude-store/ /storage

obnam then continued the backup
