The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories. All you have to do is configure: where to save snapshot, what directo‐ ries to backup and when backup should be done (manual, every hour, every day, every week, every month, ...). It acts as a 'user mode' backup system. This means that you can backup/restore only folders you have write access to (actually you can backup read-only folders, but you can't restore them). In order to reduce disk space a new snapshot is created only if the last snapshot (if any) is different from the current directories state and when it create a snapshot it use hard-links (if possible) for files that are not modified. When you restore a file 'A', if it already exists on the file system it will be renamed to 'A.backup.currentdate'. For automatic backup it use 'cron' so there is no need for a daemon, but 'cron' must be running.
