Thread: backup program

  1. #1

    Default backup program

    Hello,

    I need an application to back up my files and can copy only files that have been modified.

    I tried backintime but when detects a change makes a complete copy.

    What GUI application you can recommend?

    Thank you.

    rsync or derivatives. rdiff-backup or rsnapshot.

    GUI? None.

    I'd second the recommendation of rsync, but don't know if there's a GUI
    for it (though there probably is).

    If you want to create backups (rather than just copying files from one
    directory to another), take a look at dar and it's frontends.

    Hi
    gadmin-rsync is one.... it use to be packaged.
    http://gadmintools.flippedweb.com/in...tpage&Itemid=1

    Then there is duplicity (and duply, one of my packages in 12.1 and
    maintained in utilities).

    I use LuckyBackup which uses rsync as a backend. Has a pretty good UI in
    my opinion.

    in addition to the excellent advice given already.... you might check out this link:

    syncBackup Qt-Apps.org

    i can't recommend it because i haven't done much other than play with it, and backups should be bulletproof. I'm looking at it to reduce bandwidth use.

    Another vote for LuckyBackup. Good documentation too, and a responsive developer.
