I use LuckyBackup which is found on the Mageia repositories. The version 
in MCC is 0.4.6 but it was recently updated to v.0.4.7 on the 
LuckyBackup website.[1] I installed this latest version by downloading 
the Mandriva 10.1 64bit version and it seems to be working fine so far.

It uses the standard rsync for backing up but has a nice GUI and it does 
pretty well all types of backups that you would want to do. You just 
have to play around with it a bit to appreciate all of its settings.
