Help needed for Simple Backup development.

(2 comments)

I have long understood that to make a good free software project, having multiple authors/contributors is essential. To that end, while I am fixing bugs and writing a few new features into the main SBackup codebase (see Changelog), I am inviting new people to contribute to SBackup development.
Many users have a need for an essential feature - backup to removable media. With current architecture of SBackup this goal is quite easy to achieve, but it would take a lot of time away from bugfixing and some other important features that I plan to do before 1.0. Also this feature is very independent of the rest of code, so I think it would be great way for somebody else to help the development of SBackup to become the ultimate simple backup system for desktops and servers alike. I have written a specification of how the new functionality (codenamed BackupBurner) should function and there is already a half-ready Glade interface in the source code.
So - volunteers, please step forward out of the cosy confines of the lazyweb :)

Hi
After searching for hours for a incremental backup for ubuntu I thought I found the solution.
Unfortunately I had to uninstall it.
Two reasons.
1. no option for uncompressed.
2. No visual backup progres bar.
I had not spent any time evaluating it as soon as I had discovered that it backs up to compressed files only.
