BAR is backup archiver program to create compressed and encrypted archives of files that can be stored on a hard disk, CD, DVD, BD, or directly on a server via FTP, SCP, or SFTP. A server mode and a scheduler are integrated for making automated backups in the background. A graphical front end that can connect to the (remote) server is included.
Release Notes: Adds multi-core compression/encryption support. Dramatic speed-up when creating archives. Can store and restore extended file attributes (EAs). Adds support for WebDAV protocol. Integrates a scan mode that will scan partially broken archives for still readable parts.
Release Notes: This release added support for xdelta compression, support for libcdio for reading the contents of CD/DVD/BD devices/images without mounting them, support for the no-dump file attribute, and an --ignore-no-dump option (see lsattr, chattr). A --datbase-index-keep-time command line/config option was added. An optional time range was implemented for the max-band-width and index-database-max-band-width options to support different limits depending on the date/time.
Release Notes: This release re-adds the option --volume-size and fixes setting CD/DVD/BD volume size. It does not print passwords that may be included in the FTP specifier when creating/list/restore entries. barcontrol asks for the crypt password when restoring single archive entries. The URI parser will clear the port number if not set. A bug in ftplib has been fixed: listing a directory did not close the temporary file.
Release Notes: Sub-directories are now created when storing to a file. Problems with creating parent directories, a possible infinite loop when executing external commands, the log-post-command, permissions for job files, the string parser, a null pointer exception in BARControl, and CD/DVD/BD write command were fixed. FTP transmission was improved. Usability of BARControl was improved, and it now asks for the crypt password. The stdout/stderr of external commands is now output in verbose mode. BARControl now displays warnings when the selection of part size/medium size/error correction codes may not fit.
Release Notes: The jobs directory is created if it does not exist. File name editor drag and drop was fixed for barcontrol. barcontrol now asks for a password on restore. Reading file names that contain "\" or LF/CR was fixed. Discarding of the first character for archive target cd: or bd: was fixed for barcontrol. Error handling when calling an external tool for CD/DVD/BD was fixed. The documentation was improved: archive file name macros were added, more entries were added to the FAQ, and small fixes were made.
