This is because setuid scripts are disabled by the kernel in most flavors of unix and linux. But in the worst case we have to compare as many as files checking for a match. BackupPC checks the modification time once during each regular wakeup. Listing” to see if this module is installed. Email checks are done nightly, so this number is effectively rounded up ie: On most WAN or dialup connections the round-trip time will be typically more than 20msec.

Add up the disk usage of all the machines you want to backup GB in the first example above. If your smb share is read-only then direct restores will fail. Once you select “Start Restore” you will be prompted one last time with a summary of the exact source and target files and directories before you commit.

However, user requested backups which are usually incremental and tend to be small are still performed, independent of disk usage. The attrib file starts with a magic number, followed by the concatenation of the following information for each file all integers are stored in perl’s pack “w” format variable length base When a backup starts, there are several different cases that determine how the backups are stored and whether prior deltas are stored:. In this case, rsyncd provides its own authentication, but there is no encryption of network data.

Single files can be downloaded from any backup directly from the CGI interface. RSS, also from http: With this option a zip documehtation containing the selected files and doumentation is downloaded.

If no output is received during this time, then it is assumed that something has wedged during a backup, and the backup is terminated. Lorenzo Cappelletti provided the Italian translation, it. This is used to catch miscellaneous Xfer errors that result in no files being backed up.

If you only create read-only SMB shares which is a good ideathen the direct restore will fail.


They’re near the end of the config file. Not only does all the perl code need to be parsed just once, the config. XS” and “perldoc Archive:: This file can be used to override settings just for a particular PC. XS, a C-code perl extension. Only the administrator can edit the main configuration settings and hosts.

Storing one full backup and two incremental backups per laptop is around GB backup;c raw data. If there are no warnings or errors then no email will be sent.

This system is robust to any single failure: In all cases, the original file type is stored in the attrib file so it can be correctly restored.

Ssh is the preferred method.

With checksum caching enabled, there is a risk that should a file’s contents in the pool be corrupted due to a disk problem, but the cached checksums are still correct, the corruption will not be detected by a full backup, since the file contents are no longer read and compared. Number of restore logs to keep.
