Projects / pybackup


pybackup is a Python program that performs backups by compression files before creating tar archives, which offers better protection against faulty backup media than compressing the entire archive.

    Release Notes: This relase includes pyactivity, a new tool for future incremental and differential backups. It sorts files into sets grouped by the criterion of having been used around a determined time. pybackup was changed so that if you have downloaded "foobah-1.3.tgz" and untarred it into a directory such as foobah-1.3/, then pybackup will store only foobah-1.3.tgz, and will skip backing up the foobah-1.3/ directory. The lowest compression (0) is now used for files which are already compressed. A bug that occurred when tarring a writable directory which is subdirectory of an unwritable directory was fixed.
