Bontmia is a network-based backup tool that saves configurable numbers of last month, week, day, hour, and minute backups. Each backup is a complete snapshot of the original directories, and only new and changed files take up space when generating snapshots because of the use of hard links. Remote access is secure by using SSH. Only changes are transferred, which makes for a fast backup.

Release Notes: Support has been added for specifying the directory for temporary files.
Release Notes: Local backup works again (fixed typo). A repeating typo in the documentation has been fixed.
Release Notes: The options have been changed by request. Which filters are applied to which backup is now visible. A dry run option has been added. The reverse lookup has been removed, as it resulted in hostnames of zero length when reverse lookups were not supported by the ISP. There is some cleanup.
Release Notes: A snapshot is now created outside the archive directory moved into it when complete. The hostname is now also added on local backups and remote hostnames are resolved to the long version.
Release Notes: The temporary directory is now handled automatically. Return values have been implemented. Errors during backup of one source no longer abort the program.
