storeBackup is a backup utility that stores files on other disks. It's able to compress data, and recognize copying and moving of files and directories (deduplication), and unifies the advantages of traditional full and incremental backups. It can handle big image files with block-wise changes efficiently. Depending on its contents, every file is stored only once on disk. Tools for analyzing backup data and restoring are provided. Once archived, files are accessible by mounting file systems (locally, or via Samba or NFS). It is easy to install and configure. Additional features are backup consistency checking, offline backups, and replication of backups.

Release Notes: Bugs were fixed. If you use storeBackupMount.pl, you will have to adjust your options. Other scripts also have a few new options.
Release Notes: This release can make an estimation if a compression might reduce the file size. E.g. when traveling, you can make backups without access to the master backup, and integrate these backups later into the central one. Backups can be replicated (automated), so you can generate copies of your backups (e.g. on another external disk). storeBackup can validate your backup via checksums. With storeBackupCheckSource.pl, it can validate unchanged files in the source directory against checksums in the backup, e.g. to recognize bit rot.
Release Notes: storeBackup can validate your backup via checksums. With storeBackupCheckSource.pl, it can also validate unchanged files in the source directory against checksums in the backup to recognize e.g. bit rot. RC2 also includes some bugfixes.
Release Notes: New functionality: estimation if compression will make sense; offline backups without access to central backup repository (isolated mode); replication of backups, which lets you generate an unlimited number of (time shifted) replicas of your backup(s). Some bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release includes important fixes if you use lateLinks/lateCompress or de-duplication with blocked files or devices. There also are many small fixes, so it is recommend to replace version 3.2.
