Lazy Backup is intended to be so easy even lazy people will do their backups
Everyone is encouraged to make regular backups but how many of us
actually do? Not only can it take a long time, but it can be
complicated with a bunch of steps. Lazybackup is all about making it
easy so that people will actually do it.
Started as a script to make my own backups easier there is a ready to
use perl application available for download via sourceforge. It is

that would need to be used to backup manually.
- disk archiver as the archive engine
- dvd burning tools
- perl - script engine
- to recover from lost or damaged disks
- Optional super easy front end

have libraries written in c++ that could make lazybackup more
streamlined if used instead of invoking the command line programs.
- tool to analyze the condition of a burned disk
Lazybackup has the ambitious goal of being the defacto backup tool of
the gnome desktop when GNU/Linux becomes a mainstream OS of non
technical people. Lazybackup also aims to appeal to admins via
advanced scritability, and full functionality via command line, and
