Simple Backup Suite for desktop use (core functionality)
  20 reviews

Simple Backup Suite comprises of backend backup script and GNOME GUI frontends that provide a simple yet powerful backup solution for common desktop users.

Backups can be written to local directories or remote servers using GIO/GVFS technology. A fine control is possible regarding what folders and files to backup. Files can be excluded even with a set of regular expressions. Regular backups can be scheduled.

This package contains the minimum set of files to create backups from the commandline. It uses GIO/GVFS for access of remote backup destinations.

Also applies sbackup-gtk. Installed on Mint 17.2 Cinnamon. Manual backup does not run, and the status indicator does not appear. Note on the non-admin. version that the default directory to backup is /home/user/. But the default destination is /home/user/.local/share/sbackup/backups. You need to change the default destination to avoid making backups of your backups.

I restored the backup of my old files with sbackup (Simple backupsuite for desktopuse): 1. Old system: Linux Mint 9 Gnome; Backup with the Part >Simple Backup Config< of the sbackup-Suite. 2. Cleared the partitions 3. Installed new system 4. New system: Linux Mint 9 XFCE; Restore with the Part >simple Backup Restore => it worked very well!

Dead simple, small install, and more features than mintBackup.
