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.

Currently there are two GUI available: Gnome and KDE 4 (>= 4.1).


Version 0.9.26
* update translations
* fix a bug in smart-remove algorithm
* add '--no-check' option to configure scripts
* use only 'folder' term (more consistent with GNOME/KDE)
* add 'expert option': enable/disable nice for cron jobs
* GNOME & KDE4: refresh snapshots button force files view to update too
* you can include a backup parent directory (backup directory will auto-exclude itself)
* fix some small bugs

Version 0.9.24
* KDE4: fix python string QString problems
* KDE4 FilesView/SnapshotsDialog: ctrl-click just select (don't execute)
* KDE4: fix crush after "take snapshot" process
* store basic permission in a special file so it can restore them correctly (event from NTFS)
* reorganize code: common/GNOME/KDE4
* GNOME: break the big glade file in multiple file
* backintime is no longer aware of 'backintime-gnome' and 'backintime-kde4' (you need run them explicitly)

Version 0.9.22
* KDE4: fix some translation problems and crushes
* remove --safe-links for save/restore (this means copy symlinks as symlinks)
* create directory now use python os.makedirs (replace use of mkdir command)
* GNOME & KDE4 SettingsDialog: if schedule automatic backups per directory is set, global schedule is hidden
* GNOME FilesView: thread "*~" files (backup files) as hidden files
* GNOME: use gtk-preferences icon for SettingsDialog (replace gtk-execute icon)
* expert option: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/backintime/user.callback (if exists) is called a different steps of a "take snapshot" process (before, after, on error, is a new snapshot was taken).
* add more command line options: --snapshots-list, --snapshots-list-path, --last-snapshot, --last-snapshot-path
* follow FreeDesktop directories specs (use $XDG_DATA_HOME and $XDG_CONFIG_HOME if defined) to save settings
* new install system: use more common steps (./configure; make; sudo make install)

Version 0.9.20
* smart remove: fix an important bug and make it more verbose in syslog

Version 0.9.18
* update translations
* GNOME bugfix: fix a crush in files view for files with special characters (ex: "a%20b")
* GNOME SettingsDialog bugfix: if snapshots path is a new created folder, snapshots navigation (files view) don't work
* GNOME & KDE4 MainWindow: Rename "Places" list with "Snapshots"
* GNOME SettingsDialog bugfix: modify something, then press cancel. If you reopen the dialog it show wrong values (the ones before cancel)
* GNOME & KDE4: add root mode menu entries (use gksu for gnome and kdesudo for kde)
* GNOME & KDE4: MainWindow - Files view: if the current directory don't exists in current snapshot display a message
* SettingDialog: add an expert option to enable to schedule automatic backups per directory
* SettingDialog: schedule automatic backups - if the application can't find crontab it show an error
* SettingDialog: if the application can't write in snapshots directory there should be an error message
* GNOME & KDE4: rework settings dialog
* SettingDialog: add an option to enable/disable notifications

* fix a bug/crush for French version

Version 0.9.16
* update translations
* don't show the snapshot that is being taken in snapshots list
* GNOME & KDE4: when the application starts and snapshots directory don't exists show a messagebox
* give more information for 'take snapshot' progress (to prove that is not blocked)
* MainWindow: rename 'Timeline' column with 'Snapshots'
* when it tries to take a snapshot if the snapshots directory don't exists (it is on a removable drive that is not plugged) it will notify and wait maximum 30 seconds (for the drive to be plugged)
* KDE4: rework MainWindow

 Looks fantastic!

Very nice job, GUI looks really nice. 2 small niggles though:

1. Could you please use 'Folder' throughout the GUI- as KDE does not use the term 'Directory'. (I noticed that the GUI uses both terms)

2. In the main window, can you make the selection select all columns in the right-hand list view? I personally think this looks nicer - and this is what the GNOME version is doing.

1. I do agree I should use only "Folder".
2. Well, the konqueror details mode only select file name. I use KDE controls so this is way.

..fair point, must admit I don't use that mode much. However, (and I know I'm being ultra picky here! (so please feel free to ignore this)) - the focus rectangle is drawn over all columns. So, could you modify it so that the focus is only drawn over the column(s) that are highlighted?

I use KFileItemDelegate from kde api for files view and I didn't find a way to control this.
I can write my own files view but it will be less standard that the one in KDE api (and I don't plan to write one in the near future).

This is a pretty cool app!

I was going to develop something like this using git, but hoped somebody would beat me to it so I could focus on other projects -- you've just made my day!!!

 Some issues...

 by CraigD on: May 16 2009
Score 50%

1. Clicking on a file starts the app associated with the file - kind of annoying. I know this is consistent with Dolphin, etc - but back-in-time is not a file manager.
2. Restoring a file overwrites the original, without asking for confirmation, or checking differences, etc.
3. No way to select multiple files - which makes restoring files very slow.

1. Use Ctrl+Click (like Dolphin) to just select the file. KDE4 version should use KDE4 settings.
2. For the moment it backup the original file before overwriting it. Asking for confirmation can be a nice feature.
3. I agree.

Hello, I am using the RC of KDE 4.3 and the latest Back in Time version is not working under Kubuntu Jaunty (It worked with KDE 4.2). Will this be fixed?

BIT didn't run in kde4.3rc3, but it runs on the release version of kde4.3. I just tried it.

 Doesn't work in Mandriva 2010

I can't get BIT to work in Mandriva KDE4.3 2010. It doesn't launch. I try running it from the command line and it does nothing, no errors. I love this software and used it on Gnome.

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.
