DESCRIPTION

       Back In Time is a simple backup tool for  Linux.  This  is  the  Qt4  version.   For  more
       information about Back In Time see backintime man page.

       If you want to run it as root you need to use 'pkexec backintime-qt4'.

OPTIONS

       --checksum
              Force  to use checksum for checking if files have been changed. This is the same as
              'Use checksum to detect changes' in Options. But you can use this  to  periodically
              run checksums from cronjobs. Only valid with backup, backup-job and restore.

       --config PATH
              Read config from PATH.

       --debug
              Show debug messages.

       --delete
              Restore  and  delete  newer files which are not in the snapshot.  WARNING: deleting
              files in filesystem root could break your whole system!!!  Only valid with restore.

       -h, --help
              Display a short help

       --keep-mount
              Don't unmount on exit. Only  valid  with  snapshots-path,  snapshots-list-path  and
              last-snapshot-path.

       --license
              Show license

       --local-backup
              Create backup files before changing local files.  Only valid with restore.

       --no-crontab
              Do not install crontab entries.  Only valid with check-config.

       --no-local-backup
              Temporary disable creation of backup files before changing local files.  Only valid
              with restore.

       --profile NAME
              Select profile by name

       --profile-id ID
              Select profile by id

       --quiet

       -v, --version
              Show version

COMMANDS

       backup | -b | --backup
              Take a snapshot now (if needed)

       backup-job | --backup-job
              Take a snapshot (if needed) depending on schedule rules (used for cron jobs).  Back
              In Time will run in background for this.

       benchmark-cipher | --benchmark-cipher [FILE-SIZE]
              Show a benchmark of all ciphers for ssh transfer.

       check-config
              Verify the profile in config, create snapshot path and crontab entries.

       decode | --decode [PATH]
              Decode  encrypted  PATH.  If  no  PATH  is  given Back In Time will read paths from
              standard input.

       last-snapshot | --last-snapshot
              Display last snapshot ID (if any)

       last-snapshot-path | --last-snapshot-path
              Display the path to the last snapshot (if any)

       pw-cache | --pw-cache [start|stop|restart|reload|status]
              Control the Password Cache Daemon. If no argument is given the Password Cache  will
              start in foreground.

       remove[-and-do-not-ask-again] | --remove[-and-do-not-ask-again] [SNAPSHOT_ID]
              Remove the snapshot. If SNAPSHOT_ID is missing it will be prompted. SNAPSHOT_ID can
              be an index (starting with 0 for the last snapshot) or  the  exact  SnapshotID  (19
              caracters like '20130606-230501-984').  remove-and-do-not-ask-again will remove the
              snapshot immediately.  Be careful with this!

       restore | --restore [WHAT [WHERE [SNAPSHOT_ID]]]
              Restore file WHAT to path WHERE from snapshot SNAPSHOT_ID. If arguments are missing
              they will be prompted. To restore to the original path WHERE can be an empty string
              '' or just press Enter at the prompt. SNAPSHOT_ID can be an index (starting with  0
              for   the   last   snapshot)   or   the   exact   SnapshotID   (19  caracters  like
              '20130606-230501-984')

       snapshots-list | --snapshots-list
              Display the list of snapshot IDs (if any)

       snapshots-list-path | --snapshots-list-path
              Display the paths to snapshots (if any)

       snapshots-path | --snapshots-path
              Display path where is saves the snapshots (if configured)

       unmount | --unmount
              Unmount the profile.
