BackMan - The backup system
BackMan is a backup program which features a MUI interface or, for those
who don't like fancy user interfaces, a command line interface.
These are the main features of BackMan:
- An user-friendly MUI (MagicUserInterface) GUI (Graphical User Interface)
which makes use of this program a lovable task.
- Supports the XPK (eXternal PacKing) libraries for data compression
and encryption, to save space and add security to your backups.
- Supports muFS (MultiUser File System), a shareware project that
provides file protection for multi-user Amiga environments.
- Support for almost all the backup media (floppy disks, tapes,
removables, AmigaDOS files, etc.), alternative devices
(diskspare.device, mfm.device, etc.) and even network backups (see below).
These are only the features that BackMan has and other software have
not. All the usual features (file selection filters, incremental
backups, etc.) aren't mentioned here, but are available!

- 31.03.2005: 68k binary available
Since the new BackMan release has overwritten the old one on Aminet but doesn't contain a 68k binary yet, this is available here (Shift-click to download).
Note that this old binary still has the check for the keyfile and that there's no public keyfile (Although one could probably be organized, getting the 68k build to compile would however be the better way). This version has a startup delay and is limited to 10 MB.
- 30.03.2005: Network Backups
Network backups are possible with BackMan using FTPMount. Simply setup FTPMount to connect to your backup host and use the FTP: device with BackMan's File mode.
- 16.03.2004: BackMan 2.0 has been released
For Release Notes and Changelog see the
BackMan has now been released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.
