FSArchiver - Filesystem Archiver for Linux

  •        1501

FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

Areca Backup - Personnel Backup Solution

  •    Java

Areca Backup is an Open Source personal backup solution. It basically allows you to select a set of files / directories to back-up, choose where and how (as a simple file copy, as a zip archive, ...) they will be stored, and configure post-backup actions (like sending backup reports by email or launching custom shell scripts).

File Lock PEA - Filesystem-Level Encryption

  •    Java

The File Lock PEA (PEA = Password Encrypting Archive) encrypts data at the filesystem level and offers the possibility to decrypt single files or whole directories temporarily.

PartImage - Disk Backup Software

  •    C

Partimage is opensource disk backup software. It saves partitions having a supported filesystem on a sector basis to an image file. Although it runs under Linux, Windows and most Linux filesystems are supported. The image file can be compressed to save disk space and transfer time and can be split into multiple files to be copied to CDs or DVDs.

Amanda - Network Backup Solution

  •    C

AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup server to back up multiple hosts to a single large capacity tape or disk drive. Amanda uses native tools (such as GNUtar, dump) for backup and can back up a large number of workstations running multiple versions of Unix/Mac OS X/Linux/Windows.

SystemRescueCd

  •    

SystemRescueCd is a Linux system rescue disk available as a bootable CD-ROM or USB stick for administrating or repairing your system and data after a crash. It aims to provide an easy way to carry out admin tasks on your computer, such as creating and editing the hard disk partitions. It comes with a lot of software such as disk management tools (parted, partimage, fsarchiver, filesystem tools, ...), network administration programs and simple text editors . It can be used for both Linux an


Bacula - The Network Backup Solution

  •    C++

Bacula is a set of Open Source, computer programs that permit you (or the system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds. Bacula is relatively easy to use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. In technical terms, it is an Open Source, network based backup program.

Robinhood Policy Engine

  •    C

Policy engine and reporting tool for large file systems. It maintains a replicate of filesystem medatada in a database that can be queried at will. It makes it possible to schedule mass action on filesystem entries by defining attribute-based policies, provides fast 'find' and 'du' enhanced clones, gives to administrators an overall view of filesystem contents through its web UI and command line tools. It supports any POSIX filesystem and implements advanced features for Lustre filesystems

Perkeep - Personal storage system for life: a way of storing, syncing, sharing, modelling and backing up content

  •    Go

Perkeep (née Camlistore) is a set of open source formats, protocols, and software for modeling, storing, searching, sharing and synchronizing data in the post-PC era. Data may be files or objects, tweets or 5TB videos, and you can access it via a phone, browser or FUSE filesystem. Perkeep can store files like a traditional filesystem (think: “directories”, “files”, “filenames”), it’s specialized in storing higher-level objects, which can represent anything.

Dump/Restore ext2/3/4 filesystem backup

  •    C

Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump

restic - Fast, secure, efficient backup program

  •    Go

restic is a backup program that is fast, efficient and secure. Restic should be easy to configure and use, so that in the unlikely event of a data loss you can just restore it. It uses cryptography to guarantee confidentiality and integrity of your data.

makeself - A self-extracting archiving tool for Unix systems, in 100% shell script.

  •    Shell

makeself.sh is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable compressed tar archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script (many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is. The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip Self-Extractor in the Windows world. Makeself archives also include checksums for integrity self-validation (CRC and/or MD5/SHA256 checksums). The makeself.sh script itself is used only to create the archives from a directory of files. The resultant archive is actually a compressed (using gzip, bzip2, or compress) TAR archive, with a small shell script stub at the beginning. This small stub performs all the steps of extracting the files, running the embedded command, and removing the temporary files when done. All the user has to do to install the software contained in such an archive is to "run" the archive, i.e sh nice-software.run. I recommend using the ".run" (which was introduced by some Makeself archives released by Loki Software) or ".sh" suffix for such archives not to confuse the users, so that they will know they are actually shell scripts (with quite a lot of binary data attached to them though!).

rsync-time-backup - Time Machine style backup with rsync.

  •    Shell

This script offers Time Machine-style backup using rsync. It creates incremental backups of files and directories to the destination of your choice. The backups are structured in a way that makes it easy to recover any file at any point in time. It works on Linux, macOS and Windows (via WSL or Cygwin). The main advantage over Time Machine is the flexibility as it can backup from/to any filesystem and works on any platform. You can also backup, for example, to a Truecrypt drive without any problem.

diskover - File system crawler, disk space usage, file search engine and file system analytics powered by Elasticsearch

  •    Python

diskover is an open source file system crawler and disk space usage software that uses Elasticsearch to index and manage data across heterogeneous storage systems. Using diskover, you are able to more effectively search and organize files and system administrators are able to manage storage infrastructure, efficiently provision storage, monitor and report on storage use, and effectively make decisions about new infrastructure purchases. As the amount of file data generated by business' continues to expand, the stress on expensive storage infrastructure, users and system administrators, and IT budgets continues to grow.

TMSU - TMSU lets you tags your files and then access them through a nifty virtual filesystem from any other application

  •    Go

TMSU is a tool for tagging your files. It provides a simple command-line utility for applying tags and a virtual filesystem to give you a tag-based view of your files from any other program. TMSU does not alter your files in any way: they remain unchanged on disk, or on the network, wherever your put them. TMSU maintains its own database and you simply gain an additional view, which you can mount where you like, based upon the tags you set up.

securefs is a filesystem in userspace (FUSE) with transparent encryption (when writing) and decryption (when reading). securefs mounts a regular directory onto a mount point. The mount point appears as a regular filesystem, where one can read/write/create files, directories and symbolic links. The underlying directory will be automatically updated to contain the encrypted and authenticated contents.
