Backup Manager
A Program to automate system backups

Backup Manager is a small and basic tool for generating archives. It is designed for those who don't want an obfuscated tool for making tarballs. It can make tar, tar.gz,, and zip archives. It can be run in a parallel mode with different configuration files. Archives are kept for a given number of days. Its upload system can use ftp or scp to transfer the generated archives to a list of remote hosts .Automatically burning archives to removable media such as CD or DVD is also possible. The configuration file is very simple and basic.
