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.Keep in mind that Back In Time is just a GUI. The real magic is done by rsync (take snapshots and restore), diff (check if somethind changed) and cp (make hardlinks).

Back In Time acts as a “user mode” backup system. This means that you can backup/restore only folders you have write access to (actually you can backup read-only folders, but you can’t restore them).

Install Back In Time in Ubuntu

First edit /etc/apt/sources.list file

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following line

deb http://le-web.org/repository stable main

save and exit the file

and then add the GPG key information:

wget http://le-web.org/repository/le-web.key
