SynchroDir is a backup and synchronization utility. Each backup is the subject of a recordable "backup project". This feature allows you to save projects corresponding to different computers, servers, external hard drives, USB keys, etc. You can also backup data of computer Y to computer Z from a controlling computer X. Each backup project includes an unlimited number of "jobs". At the end of the backup process, a log file is available. Each job has a source and a destination, each corresponding to a volume or a directory. The volume or directory must be "mounted", either locally or over the network.
PYBAG implements a portable bag and is intended for fast synchronization and backup. It lets you use a portable digital storage device to carry your electronic documents similar to the way you can use a bag to carry paper documents. You can synchronize the bag with your original files easily. If a synchronization conflict occurs, it will be reported. You can specify rules for automatic conflict resolution. With PYBAG, you can backup files and synchronize any changes made to the original files with the bag. The synchronization process will only copy changed files. The program is cross-platform and independent from the OS and filesystem. You may easily synchronize files between Windows and Linux, for example. Symbolic links are supported on all systems (if the OS or filesystem does not support symlinks, then they are emulated). This program has a GUI and a command line interface.
Rapid Photo Downloader is an application for professional and amateur photographers, designed for use on the Linux desktop. It can download photos and videos from multiple cameras, memory cards, and portable storage devices simultaneously. It provides many flexible, user-defined options for subfolder creation, photo and video renaming, and backup.
BAR is backup archiver program to create compressed and encrypted archives of files that can be stored on a hard disk, CD, DVD, BD, or directly on a server via FTP, SCP, or SFTP. A server mode and a scheduler are integrated for making automated backups in the background. A graphical front end that can connect to the (remote) server is included.
Tartarus is a backup script designed to make backups of dedicated servers easy. It employs a range of standard Unix tools to achieve this goal, to simplify disaster recovery even when only a minimal rescue system is available. Archives can be stored on-the-fly on FTP servers as well as in the local filesystem, while a plugin system allows adaption to a wide range of usage scenarios. The use of LVM snapshots and the creation of differential backups are also included, as is an expire script to remove older archives from an FTP site.
