- Bacula is a set of programs that allow you to manage the backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of different computers. It is based on a client/server architecture and is efficient and relatively easy to use, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files.
- bar stands for Backup And Restore. This programme has been designed for a user who desires to backup his Home folder each week or day using cron or a similar programme and transferring those backups at the end each month to another medium for safer storage.
- Barman (backup and recovery manager) is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written in Python. It allows one to perform remote backups of multiple servers in business critical environments and help DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving and compression of WAL files and backups. Barman is written and maintained by PostgreSQL professionals 2ndQuadrant.
- 'Bloat' is a Perl script which analyses an archive's filename, and extracts it using a suitable extractor. It also supports several other features, such as "subdirectory detection", MIME-type checking (via 'file'), and extraction of non-trivial archive types.
- The program ccd2cue is a CCD sheet to CUE sheet converter for the GNU Operating System. It supports the full extent of CUE sheet format expressiveness, including mixed-mode discs and CD-Text meta-data. It plays an important role for those who need to use optical disc data which is only available in the proprietary sheet format CCD, but don’t want to surrender their freedom. It fills an important gap in the free software world because before its conception it was impossible to use complex forms of optical disc data laid out by CCD sheets in a whole/holy free operating system.
- ccollect does (pseudo) incremental full backups with different exclude lists, using hard links and rsync.
- Cedar Backup
- 'Cedar Backup' supports backups of files on local and remote hosts to CD-R or CD-RW media over a secure network connection. It also includes extensions that understand how to back up MySQL databases and Subversion repositories, and can be easily extended to support other data sources. It is focused around weekly backups to a single disc, with the expectation that the disc will be changed or overwritten at the beginning of each week. With appropriate hardware, Cedar Backup can also write multisession discs.
- 'chpox' provides transparent checkpointing and restarting of processes on Linux clusters. It was originally designed for recovery of jobs with a long execution time in case of system crashes, power failures, etc. It works with openMosix, is SMP safe, works as a kernel module, does not require kernel patches or program recompiling/relinking, and supports virtual memory, regular open files, pipes, *nix domain sockets, current directory, termios, and child processes.
- 'confstore' is a configuration backup utility. It scans a system for all recognised configuration files and then stores them in a simple archive. It knows what to scan for by reading a definitions file. Confstore can also restore configuration from backup archives it has previously created, upload them to a FTP server, and mail them to an email account.
