dbackup is a disk-based client-server backup system for Linux or other UNIX systems. It works on the principle that disks are cheaper and more reliable than tapes. Backups are started by cron, probably on a daily basis, by the client. The client backs up individual filesystems or directories with tar and sends the result to the server, which stores them in a simple tree-based directory structure. Restores are trivial, either by using the supplied restore client, or by simply copying the appropriate tar files off the server and uncompressing them.
ImageBackup is a fully automatic incremental backup system for digital pictures. It will create backup CDs, one at a time, until all images have been backed up. You than then run the program regularly and it will keep gathering images until another disc is full. Once a disc is full, it can use AutoScrapbook to create Web-based index files, automatically generate an ISO image, and reset the staging area. Once an image has been stored in a backup ISO image, it will not be backed up again. Any new images, regardless of where they are mixed into your directory structure, will be added to backups when necessary.
Better Backup is a backup manager designed to handle large volumes of data at high speed. It is extremely fast and flexible.

One of the main features of this program is its ability to preform a fast restore from magnetic tape through its use of file markers. The program is extremely flexible allowing the user to customize most aspects of the backup through a configuration file.
