 All backups tasks being run when only 1 selected

 
 by quarkslot on: Jan 7 2013
 
Score 50%

Hi luckyb,

I've noticed that luckybackup will execute all my backup tasks even when I have only 1 selected to run.

I hasn't always done this but unfortunately I cannot remember exactly when I first noticed it was happening - perhaps it was after I upgraded to Kubuntu 12.10 or maybe a recent KDE update (I'm using 4.9.5).

Any ideas?

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick

a couple of questions first:
1. Does this happen at normal run or during a schedule ?
2. Are the tasks de-selected when you run the app or do you manually de-select them and then click run ?

If this happens during a normal run and the tasks are deselected by default (eg you run luckybackup and then click "run" without changing anything) try to:
a. select and de-select each task once but also select the task item (name of the task gets highlighted) before changing the check-box
b. save the profile
c. give it another go

Hello luckyb,

The problem occurs during a normal run.

I followed your steps and it does seem that changing the check-box has no effect unless you first select (highlight) the task.

At least I now know why this is happening, is this by design?

Thanks for your advice.

BTW I'm glad to see luckyBackup continues to get good reviews on the web and in magazines, it's no accident.

Nick

This issue came up after a specific upgrade of QT.
The fix will be available at the very next official release of LB (0.4.8)

thank you for the kind words Nick :)

My favorite backup program used to be faubackup (which is still very nice) until LuckyBackup appeared, with it's very nice GUI that makes it so easy to understand and use the features of the fast and accurate but a little complex and arcane, rsync. GREAT program! Thank you, Loukas Avgeriou. :-)

 Hard links, a "mirror"

 
 by Ganton on: Apr 15 2013
 
Score 50%

Hi! Congratulations for Luckybackup! It's very powerful!

In my case, I use another program to do my backups, although it hasn't got as many possibilities as Luckybackup. Why do I use the other program, then? It's because I do backups with it, and to restore them, I don't need that program. If there's a disaster, I can boot with a Knoppix cd for restoring, for example. If the other program is discontinued, it doesn't worry people. That's because the other backup program uses the method of backup with hard links. They talk about that method in:
- http://blog.interlinked.org/tutorials/rsync_time_machine.html
- http://www.sanitarium.net/golug/rsync_backups.html

This way I can restore data, even in a disaster situation, without having to install that program, even if the backup program is not developed any more.

Then it makes me wonder, could Luckybackup use this "backup with hard links" method? This way everyone could get the best of both worlds.

Hi Gandon,

thank you for the nice words no matter whether you use LB :)

Indeed, hard links is quite a smart solution for multiple snapshots and is even used by another powerful tool: "rsnapshot".
I wish I'd thought about that from the beginning. Technically it's not easy any more to change the overall snapshot behavior of LB, the first releases might include several bugs plus there will be compatibility issues with backups created with older versions.
Still, I do consider this change a good idea !!
...so here it goes under the official to-do list:
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/todo.html
I know it's low priority, but it involves a lot of work to be done and it all depends on how the development will go this year.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Also have in mind, that data backed up with LB can still be restored without the use of any app but this is limited only for the very last snapshot created.

 Cloud?

 
 by samopn on: Jan 7 2014
 
Score 50%

Hi

I've just moved from Ubuntu to Kubuntu (I'm seriously impressed) and am planning to use Lucky Backup as it looks good and ticks all my boxes except possibly one.

So, a question before I leap. Can Lucky Backup integrate with Ubuntu-One in the same way that Deja-backup does? I can't see anything in the documentation around this.

If not directly are there any tips on how to use it to backup to a cloud server?

Thanks

Sam

Hi Sam,

Unfortunately LB does not integrate with ubuntu one.

A good (general) workaround is to mount the cloud locally (eg using "cloudfuse" or "davfs2") but that has to be supported by the cloud service.

HI Loukas

Thanks for the answer. I suspected that would be the case.

I do want my backups to be off-line. I'll see if there's a way that Ubutntu-One can be mounted, otherwise I guess I can backup to a specific folder then sync that..

Thanks anyway

Sam

 task properties,advanced,include,read file:fails

 
 by cppljevans on: Oct 11 2014
 
Score 50%

With nothing specified except [x]Only include
and then specifying [x]Read file:_file-list.txt_,
when run, the complete source directory is
backed up instead of just the files listed
in _file-list.txt_.

I'm using ubuntu14.04 and gnome(I think).
I'm using the default profile with task:

test.include-filelist

The default.profile contains:

[Task] - 1
Name=test.include-filelist
.
.
.
Args=--update
Args=--delete-after
Args=--include-from=/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/filelist-relative.test.txt
Args=--include=*/
Args=--exclude=*
Args=--prune-empty-dirs
Args=--filter=protect .luckybackup-snaphots/
Args=/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/test.dir
Args=/home/evansl/prog_dev/backup/luckybackup/include-filelist/


How can I just backup the files in
/home/evansl/prog_dev/find/filelist-relative.test.txt

which contains:

whole2/x.txt
whole2/y.txt
whole1/x.txt
whole1/y.txt
x.txt
partial/partial1/whole/x.txt
partial/partial1/whole/y.txt
y.txt

TIA.
-regards,
Larry

Hi Larry,
your arguments look correct.
I tried a similar setup and it worked as it should
eg
empty include_filelist.txt -> nothing backed-up
absolute paths -> backup only specific files, ok
absolute + relative paths -> backup only specific files, ok

Just in case: Could you please double check that the files that are not part of your filelist-relative.test.txt file do get transferred when only this task runs ?
You can empty the destination directory or just change one of the files that is supposed to be excluded and give it another go to test this...

Loukas

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
