Burp is a program to backup and restore data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.
|Operating Systems||Windows Linux|
Release Notes: Performs fewer lstat()s on systems that support d_type (i.e. most Linux systems), in order to speed up certain operations. A fix for SIGHUP reload causing the server to go into non-forking mode. Indicates the backups that are deletable and adds options for deleting them. Various small bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release added the ability to resume partially transferred files. The program now ensures that the 'timer conditions not met' message appears on the client when it is out of the time band. A bug with turning off compression before resuming a backup was fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to back up raw devices referenced by a symlink, Valgrind cleanup, and a "-d" option to bedup (to delete duplicates instead of hardlinking, not for use on burp storage directories).
Release Notes: This release adds lots of bugfixes related to the strip/split_vss options on Windows, adds notification options to the server-side pre/post scripts, adds an automated test script for testing Windows clients, stops Windows from going to sleep during a backup, and adds other small bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release improves burp_ca, fixes list/verify/restore when the regex is long and/or contains a colon, fixes split_vss backups being restored on non-Windows machines with the -f (force) option, and adds a "-j" option to format the long list output as JSON (intended for use with burpfs).
