"I've already tried and tested a good number of backup software for Linux, but I know there are still plenty of excellent backup tools that I missed so I always take time to search for more. Hence, I bumped into Back In Time, a simple backup utility for Linux that is inspired by Flyback and Timevault. One of the main goals of the project is to get and combine the best features of Flyback and Timevault and put them all on Back In Time.

"In order to take snapshots and backups of specified folders, Back In Time serves as a framework for rsync, diff, and cron. It has graphical user interface (GUI) available for GNOME and KDE 4. When using GNOME, installing the package 'nautilus-actions' will integrate Back In Time with Nautilus file manager to provide context-menu options.

"I installed Back In Time in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) using the Software Center. Once installed, you can access it under 'System Tools' from the main menu."
