I know in the past you have asked for feature requests. I haven't had any
pressing concerns until now. I would like to see a function to turn off all
backups and no restores for a certain time period. On a taxed server, when
you have a pressing restore to do, it can be difficult to have to work
around queued backups.
I got a feature request that I would submit.
I think that could be interesting the possibility to spool remotely some
backup of some host.
I'm thinking of something as a property of a backup to be sent through
ssh (scp or rsync) to another instance backuppc somewhere in a remote
It could be great to manage the backups of the lan and of the server
locally, and schedule for an offsite copy of some machine (the servers
for example) or some critical data.
If my local backuppc goes away (fire, damage or other special event), I

not running... but done inside backuppc in a specific cicle as cleaning
I searched the mailing list archive for some infos, but I didn't found
I think that some improvements in the user interface could be usefull,

host. If I need to recover an entire directory I need to know the size
of the directory BEFORE recovering it.
Is there the possibility to gain this information out of an
installation of BackupPC ?
