Easy Backup

is a simple backup application written in Python that can backup selected files and save them into tar files.

Easy Backup is a simple backup utility in Python designed to make backing up the same set of files over and over again fairly easy. To accomplish this, Easy Backup reads a tasks file that can define several backup tasks and what files are part of those tasks. Making a backup is then simply a matter of executing the program from the command line and telling it what task to backup and where to back it up to.
