NAME

brackup - do a backup using Brackup

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 $ brackup [-v] --from=<source> --to=<target> [--output=my_backup.brackup] [--save-stats]



    OPTIONS

--from=NAME Required. The source or root of your backup. Must match a [SOURCE:NAME] config section in your ~/.brackup.conf (which is auto-created for you on first run, so then you just have to go modify it). See Brackup::Root for more.
--to=NAME Required. The destination or target for your backup. Must match a [TARGET:NAME] config section in your ~/.brackup.conf. See Brackup::Target for more.
--output=FILE Optional. Defaults to source-target-YYYYMMDD.brackup. This is the metafile index you’ll need to do a restore.
--config=FILE Specify the configuration file to use; defaults to ~/.brackup.
--save-stats[=FILE] Optional. Flag to indicate that stats output should be recorded to a file. If =FILE is omitted, defaults to source-target-YYYYMMDD.stats.
--verbose|-v Show status during backup.
--dry-run Don’t actually store any data on the target.
--du-stats Prints the size, in kB, of data underneath each directory (recursively) which will be backed up.
--zenityprogress Produces output suitable for piping into zenity --progress to get a pretty GUI progress bar while running a backup. This option is incompatable with --verbose, as both print to STDOUT.
--list-sources List the names of the sources defined in your configuration file.
--list-targets List the names of the targets defined in your configuration file.

WARRANTY
