simple backup utility for home computing users

Project description

This module builds several archive files according to user specifications. 2 kinds of archives: - tar.gz against a given files list - shell specified archive

Intended audience is home computing users which have to manage several physical supports (floppy disks, writable CD-ROM or writable DVD) and/or which have to split their saved data into several archives according to the semantic they give to each part. In short, neither ‘tar czf user.tgz find /home/user -type f’ nor incremental backups are well suited for home users because of the size of the archive or the relative complexity of the process.

Archiving specifications are provided through a configuration file which follows the Python syntax. The configuration file can be used to define Python code that must be executed before the backup.
