Projects / cdbkup


cdbkup performs full or incremental backups of local or remote filesystems onto CD-R(W)s. Results are stored as tarballs on single or multi-session ISO CDs. It works either interactively for multi-CD backups, or non-interactively for single-CD backups.

      Teriffic lightweight backup solution
      For anyone with a CD-R/W drive, and more data to backup that can fit on a single 700MB disc, this is a great utility. The prerequisites are not too severe, and it does exactly what it claims to without fuss or fanfare. Definitely recommended.
