Tardis is a backup system similar to TimeMachine which allows encrypted and incremental backups, with filesystem-based recovery. It's based on a client and server architecture, and provides a FUSE driver and VCS-like revision archive access.
This utility has been written for two purposes: for making high availability clusters; for making backups of them. Consider it a better and faster lsyncd written in C.
Sauvegarde saves your data in a continuous way that is to say while being written to disk. It is intended for users that have many files to save and that do not want to miss any change on them. The whole backup is deduplicated so users using many similar systems or having copies of the same file in many systems will save space regarding traditional backup. A specific feature (caching in the client) yet to implement will allow one to backup systems that do not have permanent access to the network
Harvest is a compact, fast and portable software that can scan files and folders to recognise their typology. Scanning is based on file extensions and a simple fuzzy logic analysis of folder contents to recognise if they are related to video, audio or text materials. Harvest makes it easy to list folders by type or year, to move them or to categorize them for tagged filesystems. It can process approximately 1GB of stored files per second and is operated from the console terminal. Harvest is de
Wammu is a graphical mobile phone management tool. It's based upon the Gammu library for interfacing to different hardware and protocols (OBEX, etc). It provides phonebook, todo list, files, calendar, and SMS archiving, editing, copying or sending.
X-CD-Roast is a flexible frontend for optical disc authoring. It combines command line tools like "cdrecord", "cdda2wav", "readcd" and "mkisofs" into a nice GTK based graphical user interface.
Arkiv is a simple backup program that allows you to backup files and MySQL databases on the local disk drive, and to archive your data on Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier. It's possible to backup at the pace you want, as often as each hour. Complex purge policies could be set to delete local files and files archived on Amazon S3. It's written in Bash shell script. Configuration process and log files are as user-friendly as possible.
Prebackup is not a backup program, but a tool you use before your actual backup, to better organize your directories and set what will and will not end up in your backup. Usually when you backup your home or a portion of it, many files are included that don't need a backup, especially large files like videos, ISO installation images, installed games, etc. Prebackup lets you fine-tune the list of directories and exclusions in several ways: - Scan a "snapshot" of the directories you want to bac
Jotasync is used to synchronize folders, files and make backups. Jotasync is a rsync GUI written in Java, so it runs on GNU/Linux, OS X, Solaris and Windows. With its integrated scheduler, jobs can be run at any time.
Jaro Mail is an integrated suite of interoperable tools for GNU/Linux and Apple/OSX to manage e-mail communication in a private and efficient way, without relying too much on on-line services, in fact encouraging users to store e-mail locally. Rather than reinventing the wheel, Jaro Mail reuses some existing free and open source tools working since more than 10 years, generating their configurations and setting up integrations automatically.
libburnia is a project comprised of libraries and binaries for reading, mastering, and writing optical discs. It provides libburn, a CD/DVD/BD burn library, libisofs, a manipulation library for ISO 9660 filesystems, and libisoburn, a ISO 9660 multi-session library. On top of them there is cdrskin, a cdrecord emulator, and xorriso, a all-in-one application for ISO 9660 multi-session operations which additionaly provides a limited emulation of mkisofs.
FreeFileSync allows comparing and synchronizing local file folders. It's performant and without GUI complexity. It detects moved and renamed files, detect conflicts, can operate on locked files, understands symlinks, allows automatic syncing, copyies extended file permissions (NTFS), and it's cross-platform.
Pukcab is a lightweight, single-binary backup system that stores de-duplicated, compressed and incremental backups on a remote server using just an SSH connection.
Barchive provides version control system functionality for binary data. It can deal with huge binary file blobs, partially supports git-like push and pull semantics, provides an immutable data store, which can be used in conjunction with rsync and other backup tools.
Shift is high-performance local and remote file transfer framework. It can recover from varying networking and storage errors. Shift uses cryphtographic hashes to verify transfer integrities, throttles network connections if need be, instruments load balancing over different connections, but als parallelizes redundant connections. It specifically works with large amounts of data, and applies the same recovery facilities to local filesystem transfers.
CloneManager allows to find duplicate files, and those which haven't been backed up. It may skip files based on size, and use directory structures for search grouping. It's implemented in Java and available in English and French.
MakiPass is a desktop tool for encrypting files. It utilizes the AES cipher, provides high-entropy password generation, capture keyloggers per keystroke simulation, allows process introspection. It can also be used as simple backup manager, can export data as JSON or ZIP file, and comes with a simple text note / editor facility.
DirSync Pro is an easy to configure file and directory synchronization tool. Apart from copying files, it can calculate differences, show modified file sizes and timestamps, provides configurable logging, and can be instructed to watch an unlimited number of directories to keep synced.
