Written in bash, is a very simple backup tool designed for backup a system on disks attached locally (tipically USB disks).
Based on DAR (https://sourceforge.net/projects/dar/), it suppports continously backup (using LVM snapshots and incremental backups).
Once installed there are only two configuration files:
- /etc/bkdar.conf where you define _how_ the backup is perfmored
- /etc/cron.d/bkdar where you define _when_ the backup is performed
- Based on DAR (https://sourceforge.net/projects/dar/)
- Hot backup (the backup source has to be on a LVM2 logical volume and are needed some free extends on the group volume)
- Incremental backup
- Changing USB disk without unmount it (the device is automatically mounted/unmounted before/after the backup)
- Automatically delete olds backup when the free space is lower than a parametrized amount
- Self explained configuration files
