Description

Content Based File level Data Backup in Python.
This is a utility to backup your files. It can do full and incremental backups.
It will take a directory as input, and will back up the files in that folder and all sub-folders to the backup destination directory.
It can compress each file individually while backing-up.
Mirrors the source directory structure under the target directory. Creates 1 archive file for each source file. Even if the backup/restore program or backup database is not available or lost, the backup files and structure can still be recovered. Huge plus for reliability.
Uses a SQL database to manage backup file information. The files are managed through their checksum (SHA256).

See wiki page for additional information:
https://sourceforge.net/p/filebasedbackup/wiki/Home/

The project is work in progress. Main backup script is functional, but i have taken a break from adding features to the main program to build a GUI in Tkinter.
