PCBackup is a great free solution to backing up PC files over a network to a UNIX/Linux server. Note that I helped development (in a very minor form) in 1995-98 when it was the home-gown PERL script solution to backing up our company Windows 3.11 PCs over the network to a central UNIX server. I haven't seen it since 2000. Very happy to see Craig kept up development!
Can someone please put the situation in Linux with not filtering /var/log/lastlog (sparse file) somewhere in the docs or the wiki. It comes back to bite me every few years and I waste a bunch of time figuring out why rsync keeps aborting.
It's very powerful and customizable.You could do almost every scheme of backup. It works very well for notebook in a DHCP environment. It saves a lot of disk space. Works very well (with CYGWIN) on Windows environment through rsync daemon. The email feature it is really good and useful. Sadly, it's not enough user-friendly, lacks of backup progress indicator and there is not a easy and secure way of launch backup jobs from the client without login in to the server.
