Sbackup backup and recovery using Ubuntu Linux
Data can be lost in different ways some of them are because of hardware failures, you accidentally delete or overwrite a file. Some data loss occurs as a result of natural disasters and other circumstances beyond your control.
Now we will see a easy backup and restore tool called "sbackup"SBackup is a simple backup solution intended for desktop use. It can backup any subset of files and directories. Exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. A maximum individual file size limit can be defined. Backups may be saved to any local and remote directories that are supported by gnome-vfs. There is a Gnome GUI interface for configuration and restore.
