half an OS, windows and a fresh luckybackup

It's true, the popular free backup application is no longer a privilege available only for linux, OSX or freeBSD users.
The known curse of .exe files lead to a spell that "opened the ports" for MS windows and OS/2.

No matter the OS, give this new version of luckybackup a try
...and never forget to backup

The fresh release (v-0.4.5) of this popular backup application is already available for puppy linux as pet & sfs packages.
That tiny distro compined with luckybackup features can prove a very handy solution for entire system backups.

Take your small useless usb sticks out of the drawer and give it a try.

luckybackup donation policy change

Together with the new 0.3.4 version release, there's been a change in the donation policy of the project

I personally never had and never will accept money for this project.
Nevertheless, I decided to use luckyBackup to support people that really need financial help.
So, please consider it seriously to donate money that will eventually be used for a good cause.

Thanks to DD Patrick Matthaei LB is now officially part of Debian proper, the 64bit version is already in Sid, other architectures will follow.

Mac users can also try LB thanks to the OS X port, that Jack Fink prepared.

luckyBackup: a powerful, fast and reliable backup tool

luckyBackup, a brand new application that backs-up and/or synchronizes any directories with the power of rsync, has made it to its first (official) release.

The advantage over similar applications is (apart from its simple interface) its ability to keep your data safe by checking all declared directories before proceeding in any data manipulation.
