List of directories or files to backup. Documentwtion that both V3 and V4 pools can exist together, since they use different names for their directory trees. Rsync is run on the remote client via rsh or ssh.

The setting can be a host name or IP address, eg: Here’s a simple example of a hosts file: Don’t do any regular backups on this machine. These files are aged monthly. Character and block device files are also stored as plain files, whose contents are two integers separated by a comma; the numbers are the major and minor device number.

For unix machines you can run nmbd the NetBios name server from the Samba distribution so that the machine responds to a NetBios name request.

Set this to undef or an empty string to turn off generation of URLs for usernames. Given one or more pc paths eg: The output from ping -s assuming it is supported on your system is used to check the round-trip packet time. This setting has no effect unless checksum caching is turned on.

The correct link count is stored in the inode. This system is robust to any single failure: If there is no match, additional files in the chain are checked if any.

Some users have reported running out of inodes on their BackupPC data partition. This setting is the probability 0 means never and 1 means always that a file will be rechecked. It is best if BackupPC runs bacouppc a special user, eg backuppc, that has limited privileges.


Hit the “Code” button, then select the “backuppc” or “backuppc-beta” package and download the latest version. If you have a mixed environment ie: Now let’s move onto BackupPC itself. There are two other benefits to mangling:
