Depends on  Kommander

Submitted:  May 9 2007
Updated:  Nov 17 2007

Description:

RetrospeKt is my attempt to make working with backups easier and more
intuitive. It is inspired by Apple's "Time machine" backup system and
is based on rsnapshot backup script.

The main advantage comes from using the hard links in backup snapshots. The snapshots are not archived/compressed in any way so with Retrospect you can easily
browse your folders (in konqueror) as they were at any previous backup
point. If you are using the Strigi desktop search, you can now search not only the current disk state but all the past disk states!

A simple konqueror service menu entries are also provided for:

* restoring files from backups
* comparing any two versions of a text file with the excellent Kompare
(see exactly what you changed and possibly un-apply those changes)
* browsing all the versions of the selected file
* finding all the deleted files in the current directory
* listing all the changes made on the selected file/directory (journal)

Now there is also included an extremely simple rsnapshot configuration utility. You just select the directories to backup, where to backup and how often to backup and the scripts will (should) take care of the rest! :)

TO INSTALL:
For full functionality make sure you have kommander, rsnapshot, kdialog, konqueror and kompare insalled.
Uncompress anywhere and run the 'install' script. Provide your root/user password when asked by kdesu.

KNOWN ISSUES:
Rsnapshot does not handle links correctly. For example, if your /home is a link to /disk2/home then please backup both the link (/home) and the actuall data (/disk2/home).

Any feedback much appreciated!




Changelog:

0.11
- cool new timeline style! (see the TIMELINE.readme or Help.html)
- Search renamed to Find
- Find: full (optional) regex support
- Find: can easily list all the files in the current directory with all the
versions of each file and all the deleted files (see Help!)
- Find: should be a bit faster (but still can take a long time)
- bug: correct nfs support (thanks dreadhead!)


0.10
- NEW! Search - locate all the files (even deleted!) that match the search string
(all the different versions of each file are also shown)
- directories are now marked in the journal
- a few cosmetic changes on the timeline

Hi,

Where can I see/change at what time rsnapshot performs its daily run?

Also, I can't seem to add entries to the exclude list. Both the add and remove buttons are grayed out :(

Seems like a very promising app though, I'm looking forward to using it!

The rsnapshot is run through cron job located in /etc/cron.d/rsnapshot. The first column are minutes, the second are hours.
As for the exclude list, I haven't yet had time to implement it but it's certainly on my TODO list.

Thanks :)

I thought of some more issues: During installation the dolphin servicemenu couldn't be copied because the d3lphin/servicemenus subfolder didn't exist yet. Now, after I copied it manually, it loads up an instance of konqueror (pointed at my home directory) whenever I use it..

Thanks for testing! Today, with 10s of popular distributions it's simply very hard to make sure your software works on them all. I will add a command to make that directory in the next version.
Can you tell me more about the second part of your post as I didn't quite understand it.
This is how it should work:
You open the dolphin and select (hover over) a directory. Select the 'retrospekt timeline'. Timeline should appear together with a konqueror window opened to the selected directory.

Ah yes, I see it now. The Konqueror window confused me since I was using Retrospekt from Dolphin. My bad :) By the way, any chance that in a future version Retrospekt could use the split-window abilities of dolphin for going back in time? That would seriously rock!

Another thing I noticed (mostly due to the absence of an exclude list), is that when I backup my home directory, stuff like the trash folder also gets backed up. This can be a serious waste of space I think, so maybe it would be nice to include some sensible defaults when you get around to finishing the exclude list :)

Again, thanks for a great job, I'm really enjoying this app so far!

 another bug..

 
 by bsander on: Dec 9 2007
 
Score 50%

I'm trying to change my include list now, but every time I add a directory to it the list is wiped clean. So for example, the list is populated with /etc end /home, then when I want to remove /home (that goes fine), and add /home/me/documents or something, but then when the folder selection dialog closes, the include list is empty.. I can add my folder, but then when I want to add another folder the same thing happens..

When I manually type in the path everything goes fine btw.

Incidentally, in my konsole there are a lot of messages like this:
kmdr-executor: WARNING: Pixmap not found for mimetype inode/directory
but I don't think that really has something to do with my problem, does it? :)

I would also like to know if Dsvilko is still working on this program. It looks nice, but if it is no longer maintained I will probably not start using it...

I'm not sure if it's still maintained, but it looks like an interesting backup solution. I have been playing with TimeVault, a simple gnome backup tool that has similar goals. I know that their underlying architectures are currently quite different, but I wonder if these two could form a standard base and then work on kde/gnome front end interfaces for the base?

I would love to have a desktop antagonistic backup service but still have the integration of configuration interfaces tied to DEs.

root: /.snapshots/
d:7 w:4 m:0 y:0
backup: /home/
backup: /etc/

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
