Projects / UrBackup


UrBackup is an efficient client/server backup system for Linux and Windows. A client for Windows lets you backup open files and complete partition images. Incremental and full image backups are stored to disk in a efficient way with file level de-duplication on either Windows or Linux servers. An easy-to-use server Web interface lets you analyze storage usage, view logs, modify settings, and browse backups. Backup images can be restored using a prebuilt live Linux CD based on KNOPPIX.
