Backup applications with TUI (text-user interface)

Hi people.

I want to compile a list of backup applications (free and commercial) that provides a text-based user interface.

I only know just one, Microlite BackupEDGE, see the third screenshot in:

Can you help me?

Thank you!

Thanks anyway.

have you looked at backuppc?

It has a web front end, that you could use through an ncurses based browser.
