BackupPC version 2.0.0 has been released on SourceForge. New features include support for rsync/rsyncd 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), tar over rsh/ssh , or rsync/rsyncd 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.
