Hi all,

I'd like to announce kbackup - A Backup program with an easy to use User Interface

KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files,
whereby it uses an easy to use directory tree to select the things to back up.

The program was designed to be very simple in its use so that it can be used by non-computer experts.

It can do full- and incremental backups.

The storage format is the well known TAR format, whereby the data is still stored in compressed format (bzip2 or gzip).

The backup can be put onto a local directory (mounted device, etc.) but also on a remote URL (thanks to KDE KIO).

I started development already a long time ago in 2006, based on Qt3(!).
I released it on https://www.linux-apps.com/content/show.php?content=44998
and it quickly became a much downloaded program.
Over the years I always added new features when something I felt was missing.
In the last year I finally managed to upgrade it to using KF5, and
I feel it's time to integrate it more deeply with the KDE project.
It has also a handbook and was already integrated with the translation team,
thanks to Luigi Toscano and Burkhard Lück

I think a good harbor for it will be kdeutils.

It is already in playground at https://cgit.kde.org/kbackup.git

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
