Back In Time – A Simple backup tool for ubuntu

Posted 07-15-2009 at 05:40 PM by sridhar11

Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux inspired from “flyback project” and “TimeVault”.The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories.Keep in mind that Back In Time is just a GUI.
