NAME

       bup - Backup program using rolling checksums and git file formats

SYNOPSIS

       bup [global options...] <command> [options...]

DESCRIPTION

       bup is a program for making backups of your files using the git file format.

       Unlike  git(1)  itself,  bup is optimized for handling huge data sets including individual
       very large files (such a virtual machine images).  However, once a backup set is  created,
       it can still be accessed using git tools.

       The individual bup subcommands appear in their own man pages.

GLOBAL OPTIONS

       —version
              print bup's version number.  Equivalent to bup-version(1)

       -d, —bup-dir=BUP_DIR
              use  the given BUP_DIR parameter as the bup repository location, instead of reading
              it from the $BUP_DIR environment variable or using the default ~/.bup location.
