Description:

KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files, whereby it uses an easy to use directory tree to select the things to back up.

The program was designed to be very simple in its use so that it can be used by non-computer experts.

It can do full- and incremental backups.

The storage format is the well known TAR format, whereby the data is still stored in compressed format (bzip2 or gzip).

The backup can be put onto a local directory (mounted device, etc.) but also on a remote URL (thanks to KDE KIO).

It also includes a german, french, italian, slovak, czech, portuguese, swedish and russian translation for the user interface and an english, french, russian and german handbook.

Note: the documentation for 0.7 is only current in english and german.

For the former KDE3 version 0.5.4:
You'll find all RPMs including 64bit versions for different distributions on the openSuse build service (links below)




Changelog:

08.09.2013 (updated 0.8 package)
- Added translation for Interlingua, thanks to Giovanni Sora

23.07.2012 (0.8)
- Add dirpath wildcard filters to skip complete directories

05.03.2011 (0.7.1)
- fix handling of output from scripts used via --script
- better error message in case non-local target in non-interactive mode

25.10.2010
- Fix display of version number in "about" dialog

11.09.2010
- added Fedora and Mandriva packages on openSuse build service

19.06.2010 (0.7)
- Add Incremental Backup functionality
- Add wildcard filter to ignore files for backup matching a filename pattern

03.06.2010
- updated french translation

30.05.2010
- added czech translation (thanks to Pavel Fric)
- fixed other translation .po files

15.05.2010 (0.6.4)
- When an error occurs while reading a file (e.g. corrupted filesystem), cancel backup

25.09.2009 (0.6.3)
- When running in non interactive mode (e.g. cron), do not use KIO but only direct file access
as KIO needs a KDE session and $DISPLAY
This now makes the slice-reduction on the local target dir work.

05.09.2009 (0.6.2)
- Fix handling of disk-full situation (and a crash with it)

01.07.2009 (0.6.1)
- Avoid backup of the backup file
- make it compile with KDE Version < 4.2

24.May 2009 (0.6)
kbackup is now ported to KDE4 and has the following new features:
- Port to cmake and KDE4/Qt4, which also removes the 4GB limit per file
- sort hidden files/dirs before normal ones
- show dimmed icon for hidden files (like konqueror)
- don't allow to expand symlinked dirs as the content is not archived but only the link
- Add "Save As..." menu and store name of loaded profile, so that a save directly writes to that
- Add --autobg commandline which starts kbackup without a GUI e.g. for cron, at, ...
- Add --verbose commandline option which allows to see all files when using --autobg
- When the upload fails for a slice, offer a way to select a temporarily different target
- if target-dir does not exist, create it (mkdir -p)
- # of kept backups on target dir (per profile)
- show list of created archive slices in finish-dialog

25.Jan 2008
Added 2 new distributions in the openSuse build-service: RHEL-5 and CentOS-5 (both 32 and 64 bit)

19.Jan 2008 (0.5.4)
- correctly limit slice size:
- limited by the target directory (when we store directly into a local dir)
- limited by the "tmp" dir when we create a tmp file for later upload via KIO
- limited by Qt3 (4GB on 32bit)
- limited by user defined maxSliceMBs
- sort directories first in treeview
- correctly sort by size and timestamp in treeview
- check if a file that is archived into the backup is not the backup itself


4.Jan 2008
I have extended the usage of the openSuse build service.
Therefore I can offer now Suse, Mandriva and Fedora RPMs including 64bit versions.

13.Oct 2007 (0.5.3)
- Add russian handbook (thanks to Alexey Kouznetsov)
- show symbolic links with an overlayed "link" icon
- fix handling of files larger than 2GB
- avoid crash when writing special files (below /proc)

19.Aug 2007
- Repackaged to add spanish translation (thanks to Gerardo Bueno)
15.Aug 2007 (0.5.2)
Finally I release a minor update to kbackup. Here is the ChangeLog:
- start with the HOME folder opened
- add a profile option to avoid media change dialog
- add a profile option to avoid compressing files at all
- Whenever a directory is only partly included, show it with blue color
- Show a dialog when the backup has finished
- automatically save/restore window size
- add "auto" commandline option to automatically start a backup and quit kbackup when done.
- added predefined slice sizes (for CDs, DVDs) in profile settings dialog
- added portuguese translation thanks to Carlos Gonçalves

Thanks to Carlos Gonçalves kbackup is now in the openSuse KDE:/Community project.
kbackup is therefore now available for openSUSE 10.2 and Factory, SUSE 10.1, 10.0 and SLE10

1.Oct 2006: (0.5.1)
- added "recent files" action

 KBackup-Backup Cancelled

 
 by Bumpalot on: Nov 29 2013
 
Score 50%

I ran an almost full backup of Kubuntu 12.10, which after running OK, suddenly cancelled. The Warning Section: Backup cancelled. Above this was a hugh list of similar to '/dev/block/1:11' is not readable. Skipping
I copied this list to a file - took up 28 pages!
Have no clue what caused this. Have been using this for over a year with no problems - normally works perfectly. The file types listed were /dev, /etc, /opt, /proc (the largest), all were "is not readable", ending with Backup cancelled. Do I have a system problem, or maybe I was trying to back up too many files (all backing up to a 2 Tera bite drive with more than 1 TB free. Would appreciate your comments, as I am reluctant to use this program until I hear your response. Thanks

You should exclude the system special directories like /dev, /proc, /sys, /run - they do not contain real files but things the Linux Kernel generates on the fly.
You will not need them for a restore.

 Backup incomplete?

 
 by SeriousSam on: May 1 2014
 
Score 50%

Hello

I added many specific folders, some from /etc/, some from /home/, and many photo-containing ones from /run/media/

I hit Start Backup, it's the first one, so it's full. Once finished, in the progress bar, kbackup-0.8 shows:
Medium: 1, [ 61% ] Size: 593GiB
Problem is that "Backup successfully finished"!
So what about the other 39%?

I hit Start Backup again, it's an incremental one. Upon completion, the progress bar shows:
Medium: 1, [ 0% ] Size: 221.6GiB
"Backup successfully finished",
...finished slice /backup/backup_2014.05.01-09.33.44_1_inc.tar
-- Filtered Files: 65561
-- Backup successfully finished --

I took a look at the first full tar file, I couldn't find what was missing just by eye-balling it. Clicked on some random photo albums, they all seemed to be there.

What files were filtered, for what reason? Why doesn't it complete the backup 100%?
Is kbackup only capable of handling 2^16 files?
And if the backup is indeed complete, why did it show 61% and almost 600GiB?

I manually selected the folders, as far as I know there are no "junk" folders with cache/symlink/hardlink stuff, just bunch of config files and a whole lot of very important photos.

There's a misunderstanding.
Medium: 1, [ 61% ] Size: 593GiB
means: The medium 1 (the target where you archive to) is now 61% full and has an overall size of 593GiB

Medium: 1, [ 0% ] Size: 221.6GiB
&quot;Backup successfully finished&quot;,
...finished slice
/backup/backup_2014.05.01-09.33.44_1_inc.tar
-- Filtered Files: 65561

This now means: the backup did not write anything (therefore the target medium you write to is 0% full) and the global size of the target medium is 221.6GiB. (it seems the full backup is ~370GiB large)
As you hit the "Start backup" button simply a second time, it tried to do an incremental backup, that is: archiving only changed files since the last backup.
As you did not change anything after the full backup, it did not archive anything and therefore all files (65561) were filtered (e.g. not put into the archive).
