Micro Backup Tool

Micro Backup Tool (shorted from here with mbt) is a light-weighted, cross-platform and very simple project for backing-up files.

It is made with python to allows portability on different operative system, and it’s main goal is to make is work done without hand-waving.

The project is at very being, so for now the main implementation will be rude and straight to the objective.


  • multiple dirctory trees backup

  • common compressions

  • logs keeping

  • easy configuration and schedule

  • files ignore with regular expression

  • easy customization

  • ready to go

How it works

mbt backup files and directories compressing it in a .tar.gz or .zip file, setting the starting point equals to the launcher path. If the directory option is specified mbt backups all the directories listed in the option, excluding (if not explicitly specified) the launcher path.

If something goes wrong?

If something goes wrong the backup process continues, but the error is written on logs (see logs section). Unbacked-up list ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ At the end of every backup a list containing “unbacked” up files is written, and with the right option mbt automatically tries to backup again those files (see options section). [TODO: define better]


History logs

During the backup process logs are keeped and if something fails it will be written on logs. Error logs ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ If something goes wrong while backing up, the process continues but the error log file will be written with error details.

Define your own .mbtignore if needed to include or exclude certain files or directories based on their names.
