'rsyncbackup' is a tool for scheduling backups using rsync. It lets you set up multiple source folders and destinations either locally or at a remote destination using ssh. It has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccessary. Users must have basic terminal skills to use the program.
