snap - a simple backup tool based on rsync Overview With snap you can create incremental snapshots of directory trees. Every snapshot taken by snap is a full copy of the source directory, which can be explored and restored using normal file commands. To save time and disk space, snap uses hard links to store files that have not changed between subsequent backups. Installation Snap needs somewhat recent versions of Bash and rsync installed. It has only been tested on Linux, but it should run on most Unix- like operating systems. You can run snap from any directory. To make the program available to all users, either use the provided Makefile or install the files manually, for example by executing the following commands as root or using sudo: install snap /usr/local/bin install -m 644 snap.1 /usr/local/man/man1 Usage To display a short help, type "snap --help". For full documentation consult the snap man page.
