hi Kenichi,

If you backup your / directory at super-user mode you can have a clone of your system at another location.
You just have to be careful to at least exclude /mnt & /media, preserve all data attributes & permissions, copy symlinks & hardlinks as they are and finally preserve devices & special files

Theoretically speaking and because of the fact that all atrributes of your data are the same, if you perform a restore operation you will end up with the initial system !!

I've never tried this so I cannot be 100% sure.

This is nice GUI for rsync.

I just give critic from one thing... this is Qt application and does not use KDE technologies. (thats why this should be moved to qt-apps.org :-()

Please make this application to use KDE technologies... color schema, icons, open/save dialoges etc.

If you could add one feature, this application would beat all.

When user right clicks directory/file what is included on profile, he gets a change to restore that file from backup. That is the feature what is missing from most Linux backup-applications.

1. Restore this directory > dates
2. Restore this file > dates
3. List files on this directory > dates (shows list of files on the last backup).

I dont think these "restore" feature is easy to do or it would be possible(?) but it would be very nice.

Great job otherwise!

fri13,
thank you for the nice words and the valuable feedback.

The "restore suggestions" are already in my to-do list.
It's not going to be implemented soon due to luck of time at this period of time, but it's a great idea and it will stay as a to-do item until done :-)

As far as the kde implementation is concerned you are right (not 100% though. Some kde functions are used). I will try to fully kde-develop in the future (with the exeption of the buttons - I like using my own :-)).
Until I figure out the exact project's policy (100% kde), I will temporarily leave it here. Maybe in the near future I will move it at qt-apps as you suggest (I hope that won't be too complicated ;-))

I've been trying ver. 0.2 today, and it's just excellent! Very easy to handle, and extremely powerful.
The ability to be run from the command line is especially useful, but the UI is great as well.
Suddenly I understand why everybody's been talking about the power of rsync for all these years :)
Kudos to the author for writing this badly needed utility!

Are you saying there is no possibility to create cron schedules and leave cron automatically starting the jobs? Next version? Cool then. :)

Also, how can you enable/disable other rsync options? There is a lot of options/parameters in rsync, I don't see them all looking at the screenshots on the website. I think I use more of these parms, I will check my script.

Having those 2 above functions would certainly make it the best! :) Currently I create my own shell scripts with rsync parameters and safety checks parameters as well and schedule them in kcron. Would be easier to modify or create new with your app.

tnx!

The new version is almost ready.
What's left:
- Command line support (that looks cool at console)
- cron support
- ssh password support (I'm not sure if I manage to do this !!)

It's gonna include the most common rsync options as checkboxes, plus the ability to add your own :)

"Having those 2 above functions would certainly make it the best! :)"
...well you make me flush

Plus the ability to add my own? Ok I didn't see that part! :) Now that is what I call customizing. :)

I'll wait for the cron version and I'll check that out. :) I am in no hurry, take your time, better to release a version with less bugs than release too quickly with a buch of bugs. :)

tnx for the work!

I found the program easy to work with, as far as manual backups are concerned. Very flexible, and very fast.
But I haven't found out how to start it from the command line, so I could run it as a cron job. It doesn't seem to take any parameters. Or is it just me getting blind? :)

There's nothing wrong with you tryfan :)

There are no arguments via CLI.
You just type luckybackup and the gui appears.

Please be patient until the next version:
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/todo.html

I indent to release it before Xmas (if I find the time !!).
new features coming:
- Scheduling via cron
- Support of single file or pattern backup
- Support for remote connections
- Ability to exclude files/folders/patterns

can somebody please package this for opensuse. I would love to try this as I still lack a decent GUI based backup solution... It seems like a very nice solution!

try the rpm, deech.
go to the homepage link for install instructions.

The packages are not meant to be for a specific distro.
For example Ubuntu users can install the .deb package

This looks like what I need. I have 2 internal and 2 external back up drives, plus a back up server in the cellar. All I do is copy (no active files or symlinks) to them. This would be perfect for automated backups right?

Thanks

Will do lad. I'll let you know how it works tomorrow. I'm going to time a 240GB copy from sata to sata and sata to usb2.0, then I'll do it with your app for a time comparison. And yes, I'll do it twice with your app to take advantage of rsync lol.

Tomorrow then...
