linux default iconLazy Backup Publisher's description

Lazy Backup project is intended to be so easy even lazy people will do their backups.

Lazy Backup project is intended to be so easy even lazy people will do their backups.

Everyone is encouraged to make regular backups but how many of us actually do? Not only can it take a long time, but it can be complicated with a bunch of steps. Lazybackup is all about making it easy so that people will actually do it.

Current implementation

Started as a script to make my own backups easier there is a ready to use perl application available for download via sourceforge. It is works from the command line, and prompts users to do things like change disks. It should be a lot easier to use than the various steps that would need to be used to backup manually.


Currently used

dar - disk archiver as the archive engine
dvd+rw-tools - dvd burning tools
perl - script engine


parchive - to recover from lost or damaged disks
GTK+/ GNOME - Optional super easy front end
curses - another optional easy to use front-end
c++ - Many of the programs lazybackup depends on are written in c++, and have libraries written in c++ that could make lazybackup more streamlined if used instead of invoking the command line programs.

System Requirements:
