Hello bakcuppc developers and thanks for creating a fine piece of software.
Here is a small contribution - Romanian translation for the current
Also a few suggestions for future versions:
- an option to list the files added/modified files for a certain
- search for a file
Also, it would be nice to be able to sort the files by date/type/size when
browsing backups, and maybe to highlight the files changed in last backup
(with bold or different color).

This seems like a good moment to introduce our extension for BackupPC
which does exactly that.
In a nutshell, it creates true increments for each backup (it doesn't
metter if BackupPC did full or incremental backup), stores that in
BackupPC and HyperEstraier index (for performance reasons) and allows
users to find any file backuped.
It also allows selection of individual increments (which are created as
compressed .tar.gz archives) for burning to DVD mediums (with options to
create multiple copies) and track burend increments in database (so that
you can locate DVD medium with increment even if pool expired that
Downside is that installation does require installation of PostgreSQL,
Hyper Estraier and few additional perl modules, but it does work quite
well for us.
We need to do some additional work to make it ready for release, and I
was hoping to have some input from other BackupPC developers how to make
this plugin for BackupPC (we didn't do a lot of modification to BackupPC
for this to work).
