Recently I wanted to backup all my programming files into a save/remote location and although I have a rsync script, and I can use scp over ssh and even utilise the built in utility that is provided with Ubuntu distributions, I wanted something in Java as I am a bit of a Java fan, so gone out did some research and found Areca a nice simple and very useful backup utility.
I run it for several days, performed backups & restores and decided to contact the developer to see if I it was OK for me to package the application for Linux as it was available only as a executable JAR file with no icons, desktop file or menu entry.
So here is the packages, currently available for Ubuntu distributions tested on Ubuntu, Linux Lite & Mint. All packages are available in 32Bit & 64Bit separately as the Areca developer has included separate libraries for separate architectures.
I’ve done the research and the packaging so you can enjoy it.
Now you can Enjoy it.
