FlyBack: A “Time Machine” Backup for Linux Desktops

Flyback, the project has been working on developing an rsync-based GUI solution for Linux with Time Machine as the model. FlyBack is a snapshot-based backup tool based on rsync It creates successive backup directories mirroring the files you wish to backup. FlyBack creates incremental backups of files which can be restored at a later date. It also supports limited restoration of files within applications that are specifically programmed to use Time Machine’s functionality.
