loop backup is a bash script for automatic and complete system backups with a large but simple configuration. Destination can be CDR(W), hard disk, tape, Samba, FTP or SCP (SSH). The backups include the configuration and data of the most-used applications/utilities/services on any GNU/Linux workstation or server. It has support for English and Spanish at the moment, with easy translation to other languages.

      Spanish Only
      This script is in Spanish. I'm not against Spanish but it
      should be listed as "Spanish only" in the description.
