    Supported distributions: Arch, Debian, Fedora

    -CLI and Dialog interfaces
    -Easy backup and restore wizards
    -Uses tar / bsdtar to create and restore backups
    -Creates tar.gz, tar.bz2 or tar.xz archives
    -Uses rsync to transfer a running system
    -Supports Grub2 and Syslinux

    Is there audio with this file? I kind of confused. I can hardly read what is on the screen.

    Ok I watched the video -- thanks for suggestions. How does this compare to other backup options -- like rdiff-backup, duplicity, or rsnapshot? I currently exploring obnam on arch and I think its pretty cool I haven't done any mission critical backups.

    Thanks for watching.

    It uses tar to create and restore backups, or rsync to "on the fly" transfer the system.

    Then it generates fstab, rebuilds initramfs for every available kernel, regenerates locales and installs a bootloader (grub2 or syslinux)

    More info in the documentation
