Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux inspired from “flyback project” and “TimeVault”. The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories.

Up to 1.0.40 there was two GUI available: Gnome and KDE 4 (>= 4.1).
Starting with 1.1.0 there only one QT GUI.

All you have to do is configure:

  • Where to save snapshot
  • What directories to backup
  • When backup should be done (manual, every hour, every day, every week, every month)
