Linux only: When it comes to backups, there's no messing with rsync for reliability. If running the Unix utility through a command line isn't your cup of tea, luckyBackup puts an easy-to-grasp front-end, making automated backups and folder syncing a click-and-go matter.
We've covered other rsync-based backup utilities for Linux before — Back in Time and FlyBack come to mind — but luckyBackup takes a far less involved approach to rsync backups. If all you want is to have this and that folder transfer over to this or that folder on an external drive, a USB device or a network share, it's easy to set that up with luckyBackup and make that action run on a regular basis. If you'd like a two-way synchronisation, luckyBackup can handle that, too.
LuckyBackup is a free download for Linux systems only. Source code and compiled packages for many distributions are available at the home page; Ubuntu users can install the app from their default repositories or by clicking this luckyBackup Ubuntu install link.
