Since the eyesaver plasmoid is not updated since 2009, I ended using Rsibreak, available in the Kubuntu packages. - Jun 25 2013

Thank you for your attention! :-) - Apr 15 2013
Hi! Congratulations for Luckybackup! It's very powerful!

In my case, I use another program to do my backups, although it hasn't got as many possibilities as Luckybackup. Why do I use the other program, then? It's because I do backups with it, and to restore them, I don't need that program. If there's a disaster, I can boot with a Knoppix cd for restoring, for example. If the other program is discontinued, it doesn't worry people. That's because the other backup program uses the method of backup with hard links. They talk about that method in:
- http://blog.interlinked.org/tutorials/rsync_time_machine.html
- http://www.sanitarium.net/golug/rsync_backups.html

This way I can restore data, even in a disaster situation, without having to install that program, even if the backup program is not developed any more.

Then it makes me wonder, could Luckybackup use this "backup with hard links" method? This way everyone could get the best of both worlds.
