    Question Time machine/vault ?

    Hello!

    I'm looking for some application similar to time vault (Ubuntu) or time machine (apple). I have seen some programs but no one is for KDE, they're for Gnome (flashback, time-vault, ...). Is there some application for opensuse and KDE to do backups? Some rsync frontend for KDE?

    Thanks,

    Sure, there is a program called Krsync that you can use.

    Is there anything that looks as cool as Apple's Time Machine?

    yep, the way it looks is an eminently important part of backing up
    irreplaceable data..

    i would guess you might be stuck with using Time Machine....if you
    want something as cool looking as it is...on the other hand, i'd guess
    Google uses ugly old scripts with rsync, a lot..

    Thanks, palladium, but I'm looking for a backup solution for openSUSE.

    ok, there are probably a thousand available with different levels of
    cool looking frontend GUIs--but i don't know where they might be so
    categorized...maybe you could take on that project (make as list of
    backup solutions with the coolest looking on top, etc)..

    ah, here are ~7,400 hits for cool looking backup solutions for
    linux....i'd guess they would all work on openSUSE:

    http://www.google.com/linux?q=cool+l...ckup+solutions

    if not, maybe this one would be helpful, but only 3,400 hits for cool
    looking "openSUSE backup" solutions:

    http://www.google.com/linux?q=cool+looking+"openSUSE+backup"+solutions

    you might further refine either search by substituting "coolest
    looking" instead of "cool looking"..

    Backup solutions are not for KDE (or for Gnome or whatever). They are for a complete linux system and most of the time you will not even notice them, because they are driven by crontab and work at night. There's no need for any GUI here.

    Your solution is waiting around the corner in another thread. Can you recommend Backup software - openSUSE Forums

    You can try Back in Time which is a front end to rsync. It hasn't got the flashy and wizzy gui like Apple but it's gui is clean and does the job.

    i know that, and you know that....but, the OP specifically stated he
    wants something that "looks as cool as Apple's Time Machine"...and,
    the customer is always right. right??

    Backintime isn't Gnome only, it caters for KDE4 too. But I prefer LuckyBackup, despite the name...
