linux default iconBAR Publisher's description

BAR: is a free-sourced programme designed to make backing up and restoring files a breeze. It will run on any computer that supports the BASH shell.

BAR, Backup And Restore, is for a user who desires to back-up his Home directory each week or day using cron or a similar programme and transferring those backups at the end each month to another medium for safer storage. It is designed to be the most hands-off back-up utility possible. The best setup is to have the home user's Backup folder be a separate hard drive from the one that stores their files. Using that setup you'll have three copies of all your files.


The following are the current features:

* Only files that are unique to the user are archived. Reducing storage space and running time.
* All backups are broken down and stored by months for a convenient way of storing the backups on a CD/DVD.
* The first backup of each month is a full backup with every backup following being an incremental one.
* Backups all the users on a server at one time, with each user having their own backup.
* Each backup is specific to the user.
