Backup & Recovery is still a go to book, but it is showing its age and could use a new edition. A lot of info is still pertinent like backup strategies but software vs been updated and new tech isn't covered.
This version updates the 7 year old predecessor. The previous book was very good and widely respected in the UNIX and Linux community. Now Preston has expanded the coverage to include windows and MacIntosh OS-X - of interest to many enterprises with heterogenious environments.
For me the updated Linux/Unix coverage was very welcome. The well organized and accessible content had immediate application to myself and a client. Beyond accessibility there is also enough depth to keep out of trouble and with lots of references it points you to sources for details beyond the context of the book.
A great book on backup but a new edition should be done soon to keep it up to date.
If you are specifically looking a Bacula you might also consider Network Backup with Bacula [How-to].
Hope this helps someone!
