 Interesting...

This looks like what I need. I have 2 internal and 2 external back up drives, plus a back up server in the cellar. All I do is copy (no active files or symlinks) to them. This would be perfect for automated backups right?

Thanks

Will do lad. I'll let you know how it works tomorrow. I'm going to time a 240GB copy from sata to sata and sata to usb2.0, then I'll do it with your app for a time comparison. And yes, I'll do it twice with your app to take advantage of rsync lol.

Tomorrow then...

can somebody please package this for opensuse. I would love to try this as I still lack a decent GUI based backup solution... It seems like a very nice solution!

try the rpm, deech.
go to the homepage link for install instructions.

The packages are not meant to be for a specific distro.
For example Ubuntu users can install the .deb package

 Run automated?

 
 by tryfan on: Dec 10 2008
 
Score 50%

I found the program easy to work with, as far as manual backups are concerned. Very flexible, and very fast.
But I haven't found out how to start it from the command line, so I could run it as a cron job. It doesn't seem to take any parameters. Or is it just me getting blind? :)

There's nothing wrong with you tryfan :)

There are no arguments via CLI.
You just type luckybackup and the gui appears.

Please be patient until the next version:
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/todo.html

I indent to release it before Xmas (if I find the time !!).
new features coming:
- Scheduling via cron
- Support of single file or pattern backup
- Support for remote connections
- Ability to exclude files/folders/patterns

 Cron scheduling + rsync parms?

 
 by Franksuse64 on: Dec 16 2008
 
Score 50%

Are you saying there is no possibility to create cron schedules and leave cron automatically starting the jobs? Next version? Cool then. :)

Also, how can you enable/disable other rsync options? There is a lot of options/parameters in rsync, I don't see them all looking at the screenshots on the website. I think I use more of these parms, I will check my script.

Having those 2 above functions would certainly make it the best! :) Currently I create my own shell scripts with rsync parameters and safety checks parameters as well and schedule them in kcron. Would be easier to modify or create new with your app.

tnx!

The new version is almost ready.
What's left:
- Command line support (that looks cool at console)
- cron support
- ssh password support (I'm not sure if I manage to do this !!)

It's gonna include the most common rsync options as checkboxes, plus the ability to add your own :)

"Having those 2 above functions would certainly make it the best! :)"
...well you make me flush

Plus the ability to add my own? Ok I didn't see that part! :) Now that is what I call customizing. :)

I'll wait for the cron version and I'll check that out. :) I am in no hurry, take your time, better to release a version with less bugs than release too quickly with a buch of bugs. :)

tnx for the work!

I've been trying ver. 0.2 today, and it's just excellent! Very easy to handle, and extremely powerful.
The ability to be run from the command line is especially useful, but the UI is great as well.
Suddenly I understand why everybody's been talking about the power of rsync for all these years :)
Kudos to the author for writing this badly needed utility!

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.
