kbackup - An easy to use backup program




Kbackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files. It uses an easy to use directory tree to select the things to back up and lets you save your settings in "profile" files. These are simple textfiles containing definitions for directories and files to be included or excluded from the backup process.


Usage: kbackup [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [profile]


Generic options: --help Show help about options --help-qt Show Qt specific options --help-kde Show KDE specific options --help-all Show all options --author Show author information -v, --version Show version information --license Show license information

Arguments: profile Start with given profile

Options: --script <file> Script to run after finishing one archive slice --auto <profile> Automatically run the backup with the given profile and terminate when done. --autobg <profile> Automatically run the backup with the given profile in the background (without showing a window) and terminate when done. --verbose In autobg mode be verbose and print every single filename during backup --forceFull In auto/autobg mode force the backup to be a full backup instead of acting on the profile settings
