As stated below, it is no longer being supported. Also the app doesn't do well with dark theme. That being said, it is a very thorough and detailed app. It does work and with an update it's a program I might use.
Tedious to setup the first time. Not really WYSIWYG, with dragging the icons onto the target boxes. So many endless mouse clicks, compared to other basckup options. When I first used it years ago, I was thrilled, because it was fast. Then I used other options (detailed later). Surprised that my preferred option on Windows is nowavailable as a Flatpak, here on Linux. Now using my preferred Linux, based on Ubuntu. This time, it seems that Linux FX (a Windows work-alike) might be better than Mint. FX uses so manyCinnamon parts, but is easier for Windows users like myself. Reach a Luckybackup "fault", where if the backup has not enough space, it goes on endlessly, in a never ending loop.
Development has been frozen. last update was in 2018.
Works perfectly well, not complicated, handles incremental changes reliably, does what it says on the tin, great!
Не запускается на mint 20.04
Outdated design, link in menu was broken. I have not found this more useful than rsync+crontab
complicated to set up for inexperienced users. needs to have a drag and drop style way to include folders like a disk burning utility does
Worked better than the basic backup provided by Linux Mint's default installation - which failed to backup or even indicate a capacity to backup. This worked well and moved 26GB in 44 min over a standard USB hub connected to an external linked drive
Very useful program. It took a little while to understand it, but now I am successfully using it for my daily and weekly back-ups.
Clean and functional GUI. Great job, Lucky!
Works well, but didn't exclude the files/folders as foreseen in the syncjob
works great: automated, daily Backups/Syncs from NAS to local drives: not a problem with this tool
Great backup tool!
Luckybackup, where have you been all my life? This is exactly the kind of backup I always wanted but never found on windows. Simple and fast, took me like 30 sek to start backing up. I have been using Cobian Backup before and never used it because it was just a pain.
Flexible and extremely efficient. Great program and it works in Mint 17.3, which GRSync does not.
thx a lot, awes soft
Will not recognize devices connected as MTP such as a smartphone. Since backing up certain data on a smartphone is so important (without synching everything to Google -- blecch), I consider this a serious flaw. I am not sure what alternative program can backup MTP devices, and my Linux won't recognize my phone as USB mass storage.
The current version 0.4.7 is old and has a bug I stuck at , described here: http://sourceforge.net/p/luckybackup/discussion/873563/thread/8b8b93db/ GET fresh version 0.4.8-1 here: http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/download.html
Рез.архивирование - важная вещь. Автоматизация процесса - не менее важна.
