Summary: Disk-based backup client
dbackup is a disk-based client-server backup system for Linux or other
UNIX systems.

It works on the principal that disks are cheaper and more reliable
than tapes.

Backups are started by cron probably on a daily basis by the client. The
client backs up individual filesystems / directories with tar and sends
the result to the server, which stores them in a simple tree-based
directory structure.

Restores are trivial, either by using the supplied restore client,
or by simply copying the appropriate tar files off the server and
uncompressing them.

This software is sponsored by Optus Internet.

This package provides the client portion of dbackup, including backup
and restore.
