 Shows how to do it

I think this app is great.

I also love the response from the development team - keeps up to date with kde, superb quality control, and responsive to user input for features and function.

If only all software was done like this.

Super job,


PS and wonderful that you have an install for KAOS!

First of all, great piece of software, and good to know the developer really is in tune with the users :)

Just a few suggestions for a bit of improvement:
- when previewing (the dry run), perhaps the individual/ total amount of data to be transferred could be summarized? Also, the icons on the dry run list could have a tooltip indicating what will happen with each file/folder, as the symbol is often not clear enough
- is it possible to add a bit of fine control to the overall (e.g.:incremental) lbackup behaviour? For instance, the default behaviour of duplicating files when timestamps don't match could be user-choice (with rename (current default), skip or overwrite-if-newer options)

Hi! The preview mode has just been introduced, that's why is a bit "simple", I'll certainly follow your suggestions for future releases.
About the fine control, can you be more specific? I mean: do you want the program asking you interactively for each file? Or something else? Because differential backup is to overwrite, incremental to rename the old and copy the new one, so are you asking for something to mix it (the behaviour) up?
Thanks for your feedback

Thanks for the quick reply!

On the matter of the fine control, I meant that the behaviour regarding clashing filenames could be user choice for each type of backup. For instance, creating an additional choice under "Additional options" such as

On conflicting filenames:
_Overwrite if newer

Perhaps on some backup plans such as full backup this option does not make sense, and thus it could be disabled when that backup type is selected.
What do you reckon? Does this make sense?

Of course it makes sense, but you can already do that. I mean, the only thing that differentiates the various backup types is exactly what you are looking for. Have you read the tooltips on mouseover? Maybe that's not so clear as I expected and I need to review the GUI

Perhaps I am missing something, but I couldn't find a backup plan that does what I mentioned before. Say I have folder A (source) and folder B (destination). If I want folder B to have all the files that folder A has (but not necessarily the other way round) I choose incremental backup; however as far as I understood sor far this plan has a default behaviour of copying files from folder A already present in folder B if the respective timestamps don't match, while renaming the files in folder B. What I suggest is just to add an option to only copy (and overwrite) the files already present in B if the files from A are newer, instead of just adding more files. Is this currently possible?

Thanks for your patience.

No problem, we're just trying to understand each other.
From what I read, what you actually want is the differential backup with source A and destination B

Sorry, bad translation, I meant "has just been added"

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.
