Simple Backup Solution is a set of backend backup daemon and GNOME Graphical User Interface (GUI) frontends that provides a simple yet powerful backup solution for common desktop users.
Backups can be written to local directory or remote servers using GNOME VFS technology. A fine control is possible regarding what folders and files to backup. Files can be excluded even with a set of regular expressions. Regular backups can be scheduled.
This tool has been written with Google sponsorship during Summer of Code 2005 with mentoring help from Ubuntu.
