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

 switch off daemon?

 
 by hasinasi on: Jan 21 2008
 
Score 50%

I have the following problem: I am backing up my notebook to an external HD. Obviously, this only makes sense if the HD is present. However, I had quite severe problems with backups taking place at times I did not want it to happen. In that case, files are written to the mount path of the external HD (which is then on the internal HD). This got so bad, that my root HD got completely clogged. My X session crashed, and I could not log on again. It turned out that even after freeing some space, my system was unbootable. In the end I lost one day and had to reinstall from scratch.
In other words: I *REALLY* want to turn off the daemon permanently. How can this be done? I thought simply clicking the button in keep would do it. Apparently it didn't. Am I the only one with this issue? (I have seen few people actually having difficulties to get it running automatically).
Any ideas/suggestions would be highly welcome.

I have the same problem: I want to get rid of keep and its daemon - how can I do this? After every system-start the daemon must run (as I delete the backups before and they appera again). What is the name of it?

I Think you should also describe this on the homepage as I think this is a severe problem!

 backup every hour?

 
 by okichatan on: Mar 29 2008
 
Score 50%

I know v0.4.0 fixed the backup every hour bug and mine has worked fine for about 4 months, but one day about a week ago, my one backup directory that is set for every day, started being backed up every hour according to the view log.
I'm not sure what happened on that day to start the hourly backups

My other directories set for 2-5 days between backups do NOT back every hour. - They work fine.

Any Ideas?

 Uppercase chars

Hi!

I have a small issue: when I backup my files to en external disc (My Book Essential; FAT32) and keep turns all the uppercase chars into code something like this ;XXX (example ;068).

If I make a directory with Dolphin it makes it just fine. I'm using Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE4.

 no permission?

Hi,
I keep getting this error:

An error occured making /home/reg backup:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/rdiff-backup", line 23, in rdiff_backup.Main.Main(sys.argv[1:]) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rdiff_backup/Main.py", line 285, in Main take_action(rps) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rdiff_backup/Main.py", line 255, in take_action elif action == "backup": Backup(rps[0], rps[1]) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rdiff_backup/Main.py", line 295, in Backup backup_set_rbdir(rpin, rpout) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rdiff_backup/Main.py", line 353, in backup_set_rbdir rpout.chmod(0700) # just make sure permissions aren't too lax File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rdiff_backup/rpath.py", line 759, in chmod self.conn.os.chmod(self.path, permissions & Globals.permission_mask) OSError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted: '/mnt/data/backup/keep'

Operation not permitted? The location wwhere i wanna back up to has permissions set to 777:
drwxrwxrwx 4 reg smb 0 2008-06-21 11:38 backup

What does "just make sure permissions aren't too lax" mean?

Thanks!

I just received an e-mail from the author, stating that he is too busy with his PhD to continue to develop Keep for a while.

He did not mention leaving it die, but did say he'd very much like seeing someone come and take over development of Keep.

So, I think the answer to your question is: if someone steps forward and takes over the porting.

I sure hope so. I fell in love with Keep's simplicity and usability :]

P.S. In that e-mail I asked him if he could include support for pre- and post- scripts (to e.g. mount and unmount en external disk if present). He likes the idea, but has not the time.

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.
