Computer languages Python  +
Full description 'rdiff-backup' combines the features of a 'rdiff-backup' combines the features of a mirror and an incremental backup by backing up one directory to another. The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special directory so you can recover files lost some time ago. 'rdiff-backup' operates in a space- and bandwidth- efficient manner over a pipe (like rsync): you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back up to a remote location, and only the differences get transmitted. It also handles symlinks, device files, permissions, ownership, etc., so it can be used on the entire file system. it can be used on the entire file system.
