A long time ago, back in the days when I used slackware, I used a
backup program called "tbackup". I have been looking for the Debian
package of it and can't find it! Is it not packaged? From memory it
was quite a good program. I can't think why it would not be packaged.
It is released under GPL. I haven't yet been able to find any other
programs with quite the same functionality. Is there something else
I have included a description of it.
