Description:

Keep is a simple backup system for KDE.

The principe is pretty simple: you choose a directory to backup, you choose the directory in which you want to backup it, you set up some options (eg. frequency) and it's done! Of course you can add later some other directories.

A daemon will after take care of automatically perform backups when it's needed.

When the time comes, Keep offers you a simple wizard to recover a previously backuped directory.

It uses rdiff-backup (http://www.nongnu.org/rdiff-backup/) as backend.

Version 0.3.0 adds error, logging and notification management.

Keep still need some motivated C++/Qt coders. There is some important tasks to do: improve the log viewer, improve the notification system, implement the include and exclude file management, implement the network located backup mode...




Changelog:

VERSION 0.4.0
ADD: possibility to use an inclusion/exclusion list when setting up backup source
ADD: possibility to control rdiff-backup process priority
ADD: Restore backup wizard now displays last backup date
FIX: Backup every hour bug fixed

 exclude folders?

 
 by jetpeach on: Aug 31 2006
 
Score 50%

so i basically want to backup my home directory, but I want to exclude one directory in it that is very large media stuff. this seems like functionality many would like, but I don't see a way to add a folder but exclude any of it's subdirectories. or, it would also work if in the dialog to select folders, we could hold down control and select multiple folders, that might work as well.

anyone know if this functionality is in the works?

like the author's note above indicates: "need coders . . . to implement the include and exclude file management" - so, no, doesn't do that now. However, you can easily do what you want without this front-end. This tool uses rdiff-backup, which supports several include/exclude methods. Write a simple script and set it up to run whenever with cron (Kcron is nice); that is what the Keep daemon is essentially doing. You can do the same thing with rsync. AFAIK, the main distinction rdiff-backup has is its creation of differentials along with the mirroring.

Just FWIW, on second thought, there is a workaround . . . you can create multiple Keep source/destination records. So you could give Keep each of your /home subdirectories as a separate entry, exluding the media folder. Place each of these under a backup /home parent directory and you've accomplished what you want in a round-about way. Of course, if you have individual files under /home, you would need to group these into a folder. Not elegant, but it should work.

This functionnality has been added in Keep SVN version. Will be released anytime soon, when i'll have figured out where the One Hour Backup Bug comes from.

is the new version with the "one hour backup fixed" released yet? BTW, what is the bug you're referring to? Is it critical for ordinary use?

thanks

This seems to be a bug where the directories meant to be backed up once per day will be backed up every hour. Well, I would consider it a feature actually, as I would like to back up some current work related directories with one-hour intervals :)

a big issue for my intended use, which is on demand only, to a local mirror drive that is removed and unplugged when a backup cycle is not taking place.

thanks

in this case (if I read it correctly, with the subject as a integral part of the message) try the svn-version, this is not very hard at all. I do not know, which distribution are you using, but you will probably need to have svn and some kde development libraries installed.

The process of getting and compiling the svn-version is documented at the Keep wiki:
http://jr.falleri.free.fr/keep/wiki/Download

In case of problems, write them here, and I can try to walk you through it.

 Nice app. kio-slave?

Keep should be in KDE4 with nice kio-slave support, so you could add

fish://user@host:/backup

as target directory e.g

Actually using ssh backend is possible right now too (at least on the svn-version) - you just have to put something like:
user@domain::/to/backup/dir/
to the destination directory. And at least on my gentoo system it did not work without passwordless ssh logins (didnt find something like ssh_askpass from my system, so I made my ssh authenticate itself with keys).

This is a very nice program, something I have been looking for, and I hope the development continues. Duplicity backend would be nice, aswell as possibility to restore single files. Rdiff-backup has so many advantages over the usual tar and bz2, that with some love this can become the standard simple backup solution for kde. If anybody is looking for a project to participate, I would certainly suggest to help the author of Keep!

Same problem for me on two different Kubuntu 7.04 machines. Keep worked fine on Opensuse 10.2 before.

Any ideas what the error messages tells us and how Keep can be convinced to work?

Thanks,

 Back up to SMB

 
 by bsulzen on: Dec 19 2006
 
Score 50%

Is it possible to backup to SMB (i.e., smb://locationofdriveanddirectory). When I try to backup to SMB, I receive an error stating "Fatal Error: Unable to create directory smb:/locustcorphd/bsulzen/kubuntu_backups/Kubuntu_Home_Dir".

Is it because Keep is stripping one of the fowards slashes that follows the smb portion of the URI?

Any ideas? I am able to run backups to the same location using Konserve. I would prefer to use Keep because Konserve does not seem to have an option to run incremental backups.

Any help would be appreciated

Wow, i really like this program. i hope it's development continues. i am very impressed with its use of the backend rdiff although i am still learning about it. i backup to my son's WinXP computer upstairs from my Freespire running KDE 3.3 i think. Hopefully when the update to Freespire comes out, it will contain the updated version of Keep cause i don't really know how to just download the program from KDE-Apps and install it over the one that i have.

Keep up the good work! This is a great, SIMPLE!, program for us beginner Linux fans.

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.
