Back In Time
Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux inspired from “flyback project” and “TimeVault”. The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories.
Back In Time currently provides two GUI: Gnome and KDE 4 (>= 4.1). For upcoming releases, however, the team decided to switch to Qt.
Back In Time will automatically install a startup entry in
/etc/xdg/autostart. If you want to launch the GUI, then run
backintime-gnome. If you want to backup files other than your home user files, then consider starting Back In Time with
gksu backtintime-gnome instead.
The configuration can be done entirely via the GUI. All you have to do is configure:
- Where to save snapshot
- What directories to backup
- When backup should be done (manual, every hour, every day, every week, every month)
