BackupPC version 2.0.0 has been released on
New features include support for
and internationalization of the CGI interface
(including English, French, Spanish, and German).
BackupPC is a high-performance Perl-based package for backing up Linux,
UNIX, and Windows PCs and laptops to a server's disk. BackupPC is highly
configurable and easy to install and maintain. SMB (via smbclient),
are used to extract client data.
Given the ever-decreasing cost of disks and RAID systems, it is now
practical and cost effective to backup a large number of machines onto
a server's local disk or network storage. This is what BackupPC does.
Key features are pooling of identical files (big savings in server disk
space), compression, and a comprehensive CGI interface that allows users
to browse backups and restore files.
BackupPC is free software distributed under a GNU GPL license.
BackupPC runs on Linux/UNIX/freenix servers and has been tested
on Linux, UNIX, Windows 9x/Me, Windows 98, Windows 200x, Windows XP, and Mac OSX clients.
