linux default iconhdup Publisher's description

hdup is used to back up a filesystem.

Hdup 2.0 is an evolution from hdup 1.6. Hdup 2.0 is more solid and has even more features, it supports a 'nobackup' keyword, if a special file is found in a directory - that directory is not backed up. Also the include/exclude mechanism is more powerfull and more robust.

Hdup should run and compile on all Unixes out there. hdup does depend on Gnu tar for the backups. It also needs glib-dev if you compile it yourself. Also for building it you need Gnu Make.

Hdup 2.0 offers a much better include/exclude mechanism and can see nobackup keywords in directories. But because of some limitation in the current stable version of Gnu tar this means that not all directory information is included in the archive. You need a Gnu tar version > 1.3.25, pref. one of the newer stable releases (1.15.x or greater).

I currently have a SOLUTION for this. This involves patching tar and running hdup with the -P (patched_tar) option. This patch makes tar and hdup include the directory information in the archives once again.

What's New in This Release:

??? Files specified with the "dir" keyword are now also seperated with NULLs in the filelist.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
