Simple Backup Suite for desktop use (core functionality)
25 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.

2 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.

4 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!

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

2 Indeed, does not work (Isadora Gnome x64). Installed it from the package manager and made configurations. Pressing the Backup Now! button creates another process and then it just sits there. Closing the GUI makes the created process vanish too.

1 Unfortunately does not work in latest version of Mint. Apparently a patch is available but I found Back In Time to be an excellent alternative

4 Nice backup solution. Imho currently better than MintBackup. Only annoying problem: If my external drive is not mounted it creates backups locally and pollutes my local hard drive instead of failing silently.
